The Netherlands Chamber of Commerce raised €8,000 at their annual charity ball in mid-November in downtown Bratislava.
The chamber plans to fund a WWF Slovakia project to revitalise the Belá River in the High Tatras. WWF has accepted funding for the revitalisation project, confirmed Katarína Miklošová of the chamber.
WWF Slovakia plans to use the financial donation with the "Bring back life to the Belá River" project for measures to protect the Belá River in the High Tatras, as well as for the actual removal of barriers, assistance in protection against illegal activities in the basin, and education.
The Netherlands Chamber of Commerce has been organising charitable events since 2005. Over the years, the chamber has supported eighteen charitable organizations and donated a total of more than €240,000 to specific projects, including funding for a hospital in Spišská Nová Ves, Crisis Centre for Children in Need in Žilina and Foodbank of Slovakia.
