In December we organised two donation campaigns in our association. One to support families of our local communities, and the other one to help Hungarian minority families living in the Trans-Carpathian region in Ukraine. Both campaigns received also government funding.
We made packages for our families which contained: paprika, honey, flour, sugar, onion, garlic, canned cabbage and some snacks. We received everything from Hungarian farmers, therefore all components in the packages were of high-quality locally sourced products. It was a valuable assistance for large families before Christmas.
The donation to Trans-Carpathian families was special because we asked relevant company CEOs in Hungary to choose a family and prepare a personal package to them. The packages included warm clothes, toys, school supplies and long-shelf life food products. We also helped two music schools and a children’s home. We were able to offer new musical instruments to the music schools. Katalin Kardosné Gyurkó, the president of NOE went personally to Ukraine to hand-over these donations directly to the families in need and the selected institutions.
