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.

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!

Students from GeorgiaTech University visited us

Students of the "Leadership and Social Impact" Study Abroad program of GeorgiaTech Institute of Technology in Atlanta visited us on 21st June, 2023, which has been a tradition for many years. This time, the group learned about the Carpathian Foundation's civil society development activities, with a special focus on our work on the war in Ukraine. We welcomed the young people and their companions in the House of Civil Communities. We met our trainees Haley McMenomy and Nick Muir in person. After a visit to the castle in Eger, we had a working lunch and a chat.
