The two-hour fundraising show Together for Slovenia featured flood victims' stories and reports about authorities' and volunteers' clean-up efforts, showing the magnitude of last weekend's floods as well as the power of solidarity.

The Red Cross Slovenia and Caritas Slovenia will be in charge of getting the money to where it is most needed.
