The rehab stays are part of aid provided by the Slovak government to Ukraine, and are designed for Ukrainian citizens who went through ‘traumatising situations’ and do not require medical treatment. Slovakia will also provide expert psychological support at the rehab centre, owned by the Defence Ministry.
