Another LEGO donation for kindergarten

In the last week of June, we continued our visits to our civil society organization partners. At a playsession for young children organised by the Hevesaranyos Laskó Forrás Association, Zsoltné Puporka, head of the association, and Kornélia Barta, head of the activity group, developed the children living in Hevesaranyos in a fun and playful way in the clubhouse.

Another LEGO donation was brought to the local kindergarten to the delight of the children and we discussed future cooperation possibilities with Anna Bartáné Lehóczky, head of the kindergarten.

American inters in the Foundation

Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business(Atlanta) students Caroline Madison and Vaishnavi Vuyyuru are our interns this summer. They are helping us to improve the effectiveness of our many relief efforts in the war in Ukraine. Together, we are monitoring and evaluating the impact of our programmes, and working on a resource mobilisation plan and increasing the visibility of our Carpathian Emergency Response Fund for Ukraine program. We are very happy to have Navi and Caroline as part of our team this summer and to work with them.

Almost 2 million HUF in support

CF Board of Directors awarded the Kőrösi Csoma Sándor Association in Debrecen a grant of 280.000 HUF from the Carpathian Emergency Response Fund for Ukrainians. The association will use the grant to improve the comfort and equipment of its community house in the village of Mogyoróska, including new bed sponges and blankets. Refugee families will be accommodated, and they will travel from Debrecen to Mogyoróska. Programs will be organized for them to go to Vizsoly along with Regéc and Boldogkő castles.

Carpathian Emergency Response Fund for Ukrainians

The Nyíregyháza-based Hidden Treasures Down Association won a HUF 1,000,000 grant from the Carpathian Emergency Response Fund for Ukrainians. In the Csodavár Playhouse, they provide free playhouse opportunities in an informal way for children who have fled from Ukraine, but with help, while parents can also relax a bit. Specialists in special education assess the children who reach them and start or continue the development activities that are right for them. Ukrainian interpreters are also involved in the development work if necessary.

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!

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.
