The children of Berehove will now finally be able to spend their days in a modern and fully equipped kindergarten. László Lehel, president-director of Hungarian Interchurch Aid, together with Levente Magyar, Hungarian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Viktor Mikita, Military Governor of Zakarpattia were all present at the inauguration ceremony of the nursery school able to accommodate 35 children, which has undergone interior and exterior renovation.
The renovation project’s first steps started in 2016, but was eventually made possible by a coalition of government and business actors with significant support from the Hungarian Government. Joining the initiative, Bethlen Gábor Fund and several companies (Meditop, Szerencsejáték Zrt. and MKB Bank) financed the equipment and furnishing of the institution.
As a result, a new, modern kindergarten with new utilities and a capacity to accommodate 35 opens its doors to the region’s children right in the town’s historical centre by the town hall, caring for children aged 3 to 6 years.
In addition to providing humanitarian relief following disasters and reducing the suffering caused by war, our work in Ukraine aims to deliver long-term sustainable model programmes promoting the development and support of disadvantaged children and families.
