      Dear friends of Slovakia

       

      On November 19, 2004, the most beautiful mountains in Slovakia were hit by an
      unprecedented storm. Strong winds completely destroyed one quarter of the
      High Tatras forest. It is the largest ecological catastrophe in Slovakia in the
      last 100 years.

      It will take two to five years to repair all of the damage. The reforestation
      of the area could take up to 20 years. The Slovak Government has mobilized
      all necessary means to repair the damage and to return the region to normal as
      soon as possible.  Slovak citizens are trying to help and appeal to their
      friends abroad to do so as well.

       

      Please help recover the High Tatras, the treasure and symbol of proud for
      Slovakia.  By sending a financial contribution to the relief fund you can help to
      restore this lovely tourist destination.

       

      Please send your contributions!
