Prime Minister Viktor Orbán sent a letter to participants in the Bread of Hungarians charity programme on the occasion of completing the collection of the grain necessary for this year’s bread to be distributed among “nearly 100,000 needy Hungarian children and families”, on Friday.
In his letter, read out by commissioner Zsolt Nyitrai at an event in Hajdúnánás, in northeast Hungary, Orban noted the historic drought hitting the country, as well as the war in Ukraine, which he said “caused prices to soar”. “The strength of the Hungarian provinces will best be demonstrated when we are beset by difficulties,” he said.
The prime minister said he was glad Hungarian farmers were “doing everything for there to be bread on the table of Hungarian families”. “The Bread of Hungarians is a symbol of that, a programme of 15 million grains collected in donations by Hungarian farmers across the Carpathian Basin,” he said, and thanked organiser farmer federation Magosz, the Bread of Hungarians Foundation, and the chamber of agriculture for their efforts.
