Tristan Azbej, the state secretary responsible for organising aid for persecuted Christians, has inaugurated a children’s sports centre built in Ghana with Hungarian funding, and visited schools funded by the Hungary Helps aid programme.
Tristan Azbej told MTI on Friday that he had visited northern Ghana, where a 12-classroom school was built with the support of Hungarian architects and civilians for children with no other access to education.
Azbej inaugurated a sports centre on the outskirts of Accra on Thursday,
which was built with Hungarian funding as part of a Don Bosco school for traumatised, sexually abused children who had been freed from the clutches of people smugglers. Hungarian volunteers have offered online classes to the school, and Budapest’s Ferencvaros Sports Club has sent a shipment of sports equipment, Azbej said.
The Hungary Helps scheme aims to protect Christian communities from Islamist extremism,
strengthen local communities and prevent migration, Azbej said.
While other European countries have “invited migrants into Europe and then proceeded to expel them when they realised their mistake,” the programme has so far created an opportunity for 250,000 people to stay in their homelands, Azbej insisted.
