According to, guests were served Goulash soup and Turo Rudi (a popular Hungarian chocolate bar) in Malawi on Hungary Day.

A Hungarian medical mission to the Southeastern African nation doubled as cultural ambassadors at a recent ‘Hungary Day’ celebration at a school in the city of Blantyre.

Children were invited to fill out a Hungary Toto, while adults could get acquainted with Hungarian culture and its gastronomy – including pig slaughter and palinka cooking –  at the event, hosted by the Hungarian Trade and Cultural Center (HTCC).

Sarolta Szijjarto, Goodwill Ambassador of the African-Hungarian Union, gave treats to children all day, and students performed a Hungarian-themed production before ending with a lively party. 

Csaba Szeremley, HTCC director said the event was part of efforts intended to help strengthen cultural as well as economic ties between the two countries. 

The HTCC’s mission is to increase market access to Hungarian entrepreneurs, while promoting Hungarian culture, wrote. Chinese, English and French investors have already been present in Malawi, a country of 16 million people slightly bigger than Hungary. The Danes built even a brewery.  

Hungarian doctors working as volunteers also visited Hungary Day organized by the African-Hungarian Union. Edina Palinkas and Anna Jakkel have treated more than 1500 patients so far which means a huge help to the local people.
