The charity service of the Hungarian Reformed Church (MRSZ) has donated 81 million forints (EUR 200,000) to the Transcarpathia Reformed Church (KRE) to support the creation of bomb shelters as required under Ukrainian state rules in educational and social-care institutions, the president of MRSZ said on Tuesday.
The donation will be used to set up and equip shelters in four lyceums in the region and an elderly care home operated by KRE in Berehove (Beregszasz), Karoly Cibere told a press conference in Berehove.
MRSZ’s representatives paid a visit to Berehove to meet their KRE partners to review joint development projects carried out in the summer and to discuss further cooperation, he said.
Cibere noted that MRSZ has contributed 21 million forints to cover the utility costs of 76 congregations for three months. The charity has also collected non-perishable food items worth 41 million forints which will be delivered to Transcarpathia to help communities there in the coming months.
