Ultrabalaton Charity Run - 2019


Following the 2018 participation in the Ultrabalaton, Hungarian Interchurch Aid will launch a charity relay in 2019, too. The name of the team is “Don’t just cheer!” The aim is to fundraise for the organisation of summer camps within the “Cloudless Childhood” program. With your support, you can contribute to the summer camps of the children who are victims of abuse or living in poverty.

The goal

This summer is the sixth time that Hungarian Interchurch Aid organises summer camps for disadvantaged and abused children. With your donation, you can contribute to achieving our goal of providing children with a holiday experience who otherwise wouldn’t have the possibility.  The purpose of the camps is to distract the children from their everyday lives and give them the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, including sports, experiences and development programs.

Hungarian Interchurch Aid places a great emphasis on the transparent use of donations, which is guaranteed by an audit by KMPG. This means every single person who makes a donation will receive feedback on how the funds were used.
