President of Hungary visits HIA Kindergarten project in Zahaltsi

On her official visit to Ukraine, President of Hungary Katalin Novák has also visited a kindergarten built with the help of the Hungarian Interchurch Aid. The  kindergarten and the school of Zahalci, located near Kyiv were destroyed and severely damaged by fighting in the spring of 2022, and HIA has undertaken to renovate both with funding provided by the Government of Hungary. While the renovation of the school is still ongoing, HIA has already finished the temporary kindergarten. The modern and all-equipped container kindergarten will accommodate fifty children each until the original building is fully rebuilt.

Summarising HIA’s involvement in the humanitarian response in Ukraine, László Lehel, President-Director of Hungarian Interchurch Aid has announced that currently more than half a million people in Ukraine received help through HIA’s various programmes, and last year alone, more than HUF 10 billion was spent on humanitarian aid. According to him, 30 percent of the funding came from the Hungarian Government, with the remainder of funds were raised through domestic campaigns and international donor organisations such as ACT Alliance or the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund.
