Slovaks positive about NGOs

PEOPLE in Slovakia increasingly regard NGOs with approval, according to a poll by the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) think tank at the end of last year.

In 2003, 57 percent of Slovaks said in a similar poll that their feelings about NGOs were positive or neutral. At the end of 2005 this figure was 65 percent.

The NGOs with the highest approval ratings are those that provide social services or health care support, such as the Red Cross and the Anti-Cancer League, the SME daily wrote.

The IVO's Zora Bútorová considers this "a reflection of the fact that the need for social and health care has not yet been fully met in our society".
