The sum will be received by the Japanese Red Cross, the TASR newswire reported, citing the Foreign Ministry press department. Slovakia is also offering Japan blankets, camp beds and sleeping bags, but these currently remain in a humanitarian storage facility in Slovakia. This is because the materials, worth €33,000, were too heavy to be taken on a plane heading to Japan. The package will be released when transport becomes available.
