What We Do
We provide effective assistance to those in need, victims of natural disasters and man-made crises. Our fight against poverty focuses on support to families and children, and promotion of social solidarity.
Our nationwide institutional network primarily intends to offer options to break-out of poverty in addition to temporary help. Apart from social and development work carried out on 365 days of the year, we also assist victims of natural disasters and catastrophes.
Since its foundation in 1991, our organization has been implementing humanitarian and development aid programs in 39 countries. It is the uniquely extensive experiences gained in Hungary that make our organisation capable of delivering donations of Hungarian people to their destination and implementing development programs that are usually financed from international funds.
Building on our practical experiences we place great emphasis on raising awareness in social and global issues connected with our goals and activities. In addition to answering the “whys”, we consider it important to show people how we can shape the world and act together for a better world.
We believe that voluntary participation can be diverse. It includes varied, sometimes challenging tasks, often deep experiences about our environment, about social problems and ourselves. As a volunteer host organization we offer an opportunity for everyone within an organized framework to experience the impacts of the helping service and the resulting good feeling and positive energy.
Significant part of our resources come from private, corporate, cash, in-kind and other donations. As a professional fundraising organisation, we undertake accountable and effective delivery and use of donations. During our planned and emergency fundraising campaigns much emphasis is laid on performing fundraising with clear targets, ethically and transparently.
