The Hungarian Catholic Charity on Wednesday opened a help centre for Ukrainian refugees who plan to stay for a prolonged period of time in Hungary, with a view to supporting their integration, the charity said on Wednesday.
The charity is managing a complex programme providing long-term help, with 66 families supported so far, it said in a statement. Gábor Écsy, the charity’s national director, noted at the centre’s inauguration that the project has been implemented in partnership with the Catholic Relief Service (CRS). Refugees are being helped to find housing and a job as well as schools for their children and psychosocial support, Écsy said. The charity has also set up a helpline (06 80 630 179) with Ukrainian speakers on hand.
