Hungary has delivered to Jordan medical supplies worth HUF 250 million (EUR 613,000) with the aim of improving the health care of Christian communities in the country, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said in Amman on Wednesday.
“We hope to improve the care of local Christians and Christian refugees from Syria,” Szijjártó said at the event, where he handed the equipment over to the organisation.
“The world faces serious security challenges, but even in this situation we must not forget that many communities are still severely persecuted worldwide,” he said. Hungary as a thousand-year-old Christian state feels responsible for helping persecuted Christians, one of the most persecuted faiths in the world, he said.
The Hungary Helps programme supports ten projects in Jordan, valued at HUF 900 million, aiding local Christian communities, Szijjártó said, pledging to keep up the support.
