Refugee children prepare for the new schoolyear with the help of HIA

Just like last year, Hungarian Interchurch Aid supports refugee children on the start of the new schoolyear in September. This year, 400 refugee children living all over Hungary whose parents are unable to afford school supplies receive help from HIA. The school-starting kits include an ergonomic school bag, a gym bag, a pen pouch filled with stationery, exercise books as well as pencils and pens.


Kids and parents alike find it difficult to adjust to the Hungarian education system, and are not exactly sure what notebooks and accessories are needed for each grade. HIA’s Support Centre for Ukrainian Refugees has thus compiled a kit to help them get started. Thanks to longtime HIA partner Herlitz Hungária Kft., the organisation has been able to acquire the 400 sets at a discounted price for HUF 4 million. The sets are distributed in Budapest, Sopron, Miskolc and Kaposvár.
