Playing for Change project in three locations

Within the framework of our Playing for Change project, several programmes were implemented in Szomolya, Bükkszentmárton and Hevesaranyos. In the different programmes, children learned about the importance of the canvas bag, the mysteries of candle making and Advent wreath making, the land of scents, and even overcame their own fears through the power of fairy tales.

We wish good luck to our partners, the Hungarian Roma Association of Szomolya, the Laskó Spring Association and the Association of Village builders of Bükkszentmárton for the further realization!

We handed over our fourth ambulance


The three of us left with the ambulance and an escort car on Friday afternoon to a village called Palanca at the Moldovan-Ukrainian border, which is about 1000 km from Eger.

We spent the night in Oradea due to a flat tire, which was repaired next morning.  After that we drove through the beautiful landscapes of Transylvania, crossing through the Békás Strait to find accommodation in Târgu Frumos.

Christmas gift package for Ukrainian refugee families

The project aims to collect financial and in-kind donations to provide Christmas gift packages for Ukrainian families who have fled to Hungary. The packages will contain presents selected based on the composition of the families, and will include a variety of necessary and Christmas-themed items from antipyretics to toys, cleaning and hygiene products, durable food and sweets. We wish to contribute to creating these families and their children a Christmas atmosphere, regardless of the circumstances they must live in. 

We introduce our new scholar

The Carpathian Foundation's Carpathian Equal Opportunities Scholarship Programme's grantee for the academic year 2022/2023 is Zoltán Szűrös, a student of the University of Debrecen, majoring in commerce and marketing, who will spend his internship at the Martfű Town Planning Association for 10 hours per week between October 2022 and June 2023.

1 million HUF for Ukrainian refugees!

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.
