Statement on the war in Ukraine

For almost three decades, the Carpathian Foundation, which embraces the bordering areas of Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Ukraine, has contributed to the development of the Carpathian Region. Our Foundation fosters cross-border cooperation, overcoming language barriers, cultural and historical differences to strengthen the role of civil society in local development, thus contributing to the territorial cohesion of the Carpathians.

The current war in Europe contradicts everything the Carpathian Foundation and its partners stand for.

1 million HUF for Ukrainian refugees!

Today we were able to donate supplies (medicine, medical supplies, bandages, etc.) worth more than HUF 1 million to our Ukrainian colleagues to be sent to hospitals in Transcarpathia! Thank you for the support from which you made this donation possible. We are continuing to collect for this purpose in our Emergency Response Fund for Ukrainians, with which we would like to further support civil society organizations and civic initiatives helping refugees fleeing to Hungary from Ukraine! Thank You!

Evaluation of the Emergency Response Fund for Ukrainians Program

The mission of the Carpathian Foundation is to improve the quality of life of people living in the Carpathian region, to preserve the social, ethnic, cultural and environmental values of the region and to promote its sustainable development. Since the first day of the war in Ukraine, the Eger-based foundation has been committed to helping those who have suffered from the aggression of war.

The Carpathian Civil Society Platform

The Carpathian Civil Society Platform – Inter-regional Conference was held in Eger, Hungary, from 29 February to 1 March 2024, organised by the Carpathian Foundation-Hungary. The event brought together leading NGOs from the region, as well as representatives of national and international organisations. Its aim is to strengthen the platform for civil society cooperation across five countries (Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine).

Hopeful Horizons

In our project „Hopeful Horizons: A Year-long Journey of Support and Solidarity for Refugees in Hungary”, we provide complex support to individuals and families in North-East Hungary in 2024 fled from the war in Ukraine thanks to the financial support of the UNHCR. Our team is working in Heves, Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg and Hajdú-Bihar counties. In the last two counties the social inclusion of refugees are supported by our professional partners.

The Early Years are important for support

On 15 February 2024, the Board of Directors of the Carpathian Foundation awarded a grant of HUF 16 million to four NGOs in the Early Years Matter Program, with HUF 4 million each. The Hungarian Roma Association of Szomolya, the Somnakuno Drom Roma Women's Civil Association of Nagykálló, the SZETA Eger and the 21st Century Roma Women's National Association of Nyíregyháza  got the grant for early skills development of marginalized children in the North-Eastern Hungary region until the end of the year.

Platform for inclusive early childhood services

On 7 February 2024, we organised the third meeting in Nyíregyháza to build a platform for inclusive early childhood services.

The aim of the platform is to improve the accessibility and quality of early childhood services in Hungary through the cooperation and joint action of families, parents, institutions and civil society actors, to ensure that everyone has access to them, that everyone can use them, and that the proper development of young children is ensured for all through quality education, upbringing, care and other services.
