As we have already informed on our website, we are trying to adapt the rules of the Programme implementation to the pandemic situation in order to facilitate the implementation of the projects as much as possible. This applies in particular to 13 medical projects implemented under the Programme. Thanks to them the Programme actively participates in the fight against the pandemic.

We have not only facilitated the introduction of appropriate changes to increase their impact in these demanding conditions, but also allocated an additional 3 M EUR for the medical projects to fight against the pandemic directly.

Thanks to additional funds, a video spot was also produced to get acquainted children with the skills needed during the pandemic.

We know how our projects are important for the inhabitants of the Programme area. During the pandemic, additionally we saw the special importance of actions taken by the medical projects. We would like to thank all employees involved in their implementation, for their readiness to even more intense work and effort, and often risking their own and loved ones' lives. And this is where we want to give voice to them - the partners of medical projects talk about their work and cooperation in these difficult times in the movie that we have prepared together with them for you.

We invite you to watch.
