In order to help Transcarpathian people fleeing the Russo-Ukrainian War, Hungarian Bankholding Group is donating HUF 1,000 on behalf of each employee of the group, totaling HUF 10.5 million to the refugees through the Bridge for Transcarpathia (Híd Kárpátaljáért) aid program.
The group announced the donation at an internal corporate event held on March 11, where the group encouraged colleagues to make further donations.
"As one of the largest groups of companies in the country, we felt it was important to join the Bridge for Transcarpathia initiative, exercising our responsibility to society. In addition to the joint donation, many of our colleagues are also supporting the refugees from the war through voluntary work, which inspires the owners and management of Hungarian Bankholding to continue to help" - said Zsolt Barna, chairman and CEO of Hungarian Bankholding.
Donations can be made to the Bridge for Transcarpathia at national helpline 1357 for 500 HUF per call or text message. The program is also accepting financial contributions from donors on the account number 11711711-22222222; in addition, the charitable organizations participating in the aid program are also looking for applications for accommodation and host families, as well as donations of food capacities and non-perishable food, and donations from entrepreneurs, municipalities, and individuals.
