National Association of Large Families in Hungary helping refugees from Ukraine

Hungary has received the second largest number of refugees from Ukraine in the EU after Poland.

Majority of those fleeing are women and children.

Civil society across the country has mobilized itself basically overnight.

State actors, including local governments, were also fast to act.

The National Charity Council now is the platform for structured help and cooperation.

NOE has collected and distributed donations at the border but also on Ukrainian ground, in the Transcarpathian region.

Families are helping families, hosting those who had to leave their home.

Volunteers are key in the present emergency response.
