Following the Baptist Charity’s traditional shoe box gift initiative, wrapped in a shoe box, Vantage Towers Ltd. donated to the Hungarian Baptist Aid, a property adjacent to its site housing a 54-meter-high base station in the village of Magy, where the charitable organization operates community space, a community laundry, and baths for the underprivileged.

The company has recently purchased the site housing a 54-meter-high base station in the village of Magy from the local municipality. For years, a part of the land had been rented by Hungarian Baptist Aid for community space purposes.

Following the purchase, Vantage Towers divided the property into separate plot numbers for the base station and the social buildings operated by Hungarian Baptist Aid. Vantage Towers donated the land and the buildings used by the Hungarian Baptist Aid, meaning that from now on Hungarian Baptist Aid can continue its charitable activities unhindered on the land it now owns.

"At Vantage Towers, we believe that it is essential that we use our resources in the best way possible to ensure the sustainability of operations. That is why we make our 2 200 base stations and infrastructure accessible to all infocomms operators to support sustainability which is a logical step from an environmental point of view as well," explained Gergő J. Budai, CEO of Vantage Towers Ltd.

"We also make sure that our sites are used for a variety of other purposes too, to support the local communities. For example, we have recently started to deploy e-car charging stations on easily accessible sites. With this land donation, we are able to support the development of a local micro-community in Magy, by ensuring the long-term, cost-effective and uninterrupted continuation of services offered by Hungarian Baptist Aid. We believe that we have a duty towards the community we are a part of, and if we have unexploited resources that can contribute to the advancement of society or the local community we should not hesitate to put them to good use," he added.

"We are very grateful for the land donated to us for use in our Catching Up Settlements program in this very underprivileged region. Nothing expresses our gratitude better than the following quote: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me," said Béla Szilágyi, president of the Hungarian Baptist Aid.

Hungarian Baptist Aid has been present in the settlement of Magy in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County since March 2018, within the framework of complex borough- and settlement-level convergence programs. The aim of the program is to improve the quality of life of the local population, with an emphasis on early childhood development, work socialization, the advancement of educational and healthcare services, as well as the improvement of housing conditions. It is in this spirit that the charity operates the above social laundry facility and baths in the area near Magy, as well as a community space for people living in the settlement (Kauzsay ranch).

In addition, Vantage Towers Ltd. and its employees have joined the Baptist Charity Service's Shoebox initiative, which has been running successfully for years.
