More than €1.4 million was sent to the official account the city of Prešov opened for donations for people affected by the explosion of the block of flats on Mukačevská Street.
The Government's Office sent another million to the city account. The Košice and Prešov self-governing regions decided to help with €100,000 and €50,000 respectively.
Mayor Andrea Turčanová said that they first want to help those who were affected the most, but also people who had their windows broken or cars damaged.
“For six months we want to pay them €300 to allow them to pay rent for whatever flat they live,” the mayor said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
