More info about the ADF organiser – Slovak Ambrela platform

Platform for Development Organizations – Ambrela is an umbrella organisation of 30+ mostly non-governmental organisations in Slovakia, which focus on humanitarian aid, development cooperation, global citizenship education and sustainable development at home and abroad. In October 2023 Ambrela together with its members, donors and partners celebrated the 20th anniversary of platform’s existence and importance within the region

According to UNHCR since the start of the war in Ukraine in February 2022, over 1.3 million people have crossed the border into Slovakia. Close to 83 % are women and children, but there are also older people and those who need urgent medical care or who have disabilities. Therefore an international development community must also focus on the refugee and migration topic. Ambrela’s awareness campaigns and the upcoming Ambrela development forum (ADF) are thus gaining an increasing attention. More information about Ambrela’s activities can be found at:


Note: This ADF conference is funded by the MFEA Slovakia, SlovakAid, GENE, European Commission and EU under the project Stronger roots. Ambrela platform is solely responsible for its content and does not necessarily reflect the views of the SR or EU.
