A project cooperation between Lyoness Hungary and the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation Association

Project Description

The Lyoness Child & Family Foundation Association and the Lyoness Community Hungary have already sponsored the "Gyermek Jézus Otthon" Orphanage near Székelyhíd three times to help improve the lives of the children and adolescents who live there. We began by planting more than 150 rose bushes in the outdoor area and then we purchased of a swing for the playground. Large-scale assistance was most recently provided for the home with the donation of bunk beds and toys.

The third charity project is meant to provide further relief to the home. As the carers, staff, and children have become close friends with the Lyoness angels, these "Angels for a Day" have become true guardian angels for the organisation.

This time, clothing, toys, personal hygiene items, food, and - much to the delight of the organisation - three computers and school starter kits were provided for the children.

Most of these items were purchased or provided by Lyoness Loyalty Merchants and Lyoness Members and also by the CFE Association. But it wasn't just these necessary purchases which made the children and adolescents happy! As the children, adolescents and the many helpers now know each other better, seeing the children again is always a great moment. This time a wonderful day including an excursion was organised at short notice. The day flew by as the group enjoyed painting, hiking, eating together, and singing. It was an emotional goodbye for all those taking part, but everyone agreed that this would not be the guardian angels´ last project in Hungary. Everyone is looking forward to the next reunion.

We'd like to thank the Loyalty Merchants, sponsors, and all the Educational Sponsors for their great support.

Project Goals

The aim of this project was to organise important equipment for daily use for the Gyermek Jézus Otthon Orphanage, such as providing the home with three computers for educational purposes, preparing the children for the new school year with School Starter Kits, and to spend a day out with the children to allow them to get away from their daily routines.
