    Poland Extends Helping Hand to Slovenia After Devastating Floods

    In the aftermath of the devastating floods that wreaked havoc in Slovenia, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has pledged his country’s unwavering support and solidarity.

    On Saturday night, Morawiecki took to social media, expressing heartfelt condolences to the victims of the disastrous floods and announcing Poland’s readiness to provide aid. “Devastating news from Slovenia. On behalf of the Polish government, I express our solidarity with all those affected by the disastrous flood. Poland stands ready to support our Slovenian friends,” he stated on X (formerly known as Twitter).

    The floods, which struck the country on Thursday and Friday, resulted in the loss of at least four lives and significant damage to roads, bridges, and houses. Nearly two-thirds of the territory was affected, leaving communities in distress.

    In response to the crisis, the Polish Red Cross has swiftly mobilized its resources to offer assistance. A member of the board, Michal Mikolajczyk, informed the Press Agency of Poland (PAP) that the first shipment of humanitarian aid to Slovenia is scheduled to depart later on Sunday.
