Early Years Matter conference

At the end of January, we organised a professional conference on successful early childhood interventions in deprived and excluded communities, entitled Early Years Matter. We heard a presentation by Dr Zsombor Farkas, Associate Professor at ELTE, on the situation of child poverty in Hungary, followed by a presentation by Fanni Salomé Csonka on the work of EMMA Association.

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.

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.
