Visit to a Children’s Home – Mátészalka – May 2022

Visit to a Children’s Home – Mátészalka – May 2022

This time we visited the Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County Child Protection Center in Mátészalka, where we donated 10 new Samsung smart TVs to the children living there, in addition, some smaller computer accessories were also delivered to make the everyday life of the educators easier. We have had a very good relationship with the head of the institution for a long time, so it was a pleasure for us to visit them again in person. In Mátészalka, several of their professional units have been beautifully renewed in recent years, which the children also try to take care of. The TVs will certainly be in a good place with them too and we hope we can contribute to the lives of the groups by having fun, watching movies together.

Visit to a Children’s Home – Children’s Home of Miskolc – May 2022

This time we visited the eastern part of Hungary to deliver our donations in person to the Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County Child Protection Center in Miskolc; we donated 20 mini hi-fi sets to this institution. The head of the institution said their experience is that children are instinctively involved in all music-related activities that they seem to enjoy. Therefore they have chosen these products, from which all their professional units benefit equally, to channel the children’s energies with as many music programs as possible, which also develops the community.

Visit to a Children’s Home – Bólyai Children’s Home – May 2022

Visit to a Children’s Home – Bólyai Children’s Home – May 2022

These days we had another opportunity to visit some orphanages. This time we visited the Bolyai Children’s Home Center in Budapest, where we were happy to take the donations selected by the recipient institution. The children’s home operating at Breznó Lane is situated in one of the most beautiful environment of Budapest, at the foot of Sas Hill. The home was filled with a very friendly and family atmosphere mainly because we had the opportunity to meet some of the students who welcomed us kindly and smiling. The new phones donated will primarily help educators and carers working from home in their day-to-day work, while tablets will expand children’s learning and entertainment opportunities.

VISITING THE CHILDREN’S HOME – DEVELOPMENT HOUSE AT MÉNFŐCSANAK – APRIL 2022

VISITING THE CHILDREN’S HOME – DEVELOPMENT HOUSE AT MÉNFŐCSANAK – APRIL 2022

This time we visited the development house at Ménfőcsanak that belongs to the Győr-Moson-Sopron County Child Protection Center, where, thanks to our Foundation, we have created a salt room for children where the little ones can heal and strengthen their immune system while playing.

The salt cleanses the lungs and bronchi and provides spectacular development in children with allergies or asthma. With regular visits, hay fever, tracheobronchitis, sinusitis, otitis, vocal cord inflammation and bronchitis can also be treated well. According to research, the salt room also helps hyperactive children: concentration and sleep disorders can be alleviated or even eliminated, and it also has an excellent stress-relieving and relaxing effect.

There are several beneficial physiological effects during and after spending time in the salt room. These effects are mainly due to the Himalayan salt from which the wall of the salt room was built, and the salt sand pit, salt lamps and a special ionizer in the room continuously release salt into the air. As a result, the air in the salt room is free of dust and stimuli, and is highly antiallergic and antibacterial.

Our goal was to create a salt room where children can have fun while healing and strengthening their immune systems.


VISIT TO THE CHILDREN’S HOME OF MÓNOSBÉL – APRIL 2022

VISIT TO THE CHILDREN’S HOME OF MÓNOSBÉL – APRIL 2022

During our visit to Mónosbél we surprised the children with 15 brand new smart television sets, which will be distributed among the children’s homes and residential child care homes supervised by the Child Protection Center of Heves County.

In the course of a pleasant conversation, we were briefly informed of the organizational structure of the institution, the professional programs and the educational activities. We met children and educators alike, so we could get a brief insight into the lives and leisure activities of the children and young people educated in the institution, thanks to which we were able to get an objective picture of their work, showing their successes and difficulties.
To our great surprise, the talented children living in the home also prepared a performance for us, which was very touching and moving.

The country has come together shoulder to shoulder on the issue of Ukrainian refugees. Of course, Gattyán Foundation also contributed several million forints to help them.

This time, our organization supports the children of Transcarpathia who stay on the other side of the border and need acute help due to the war. After contacting the representatives of the region, we were informed about the needs of the children living there. With this donation, we support three kindergartens in Transcarpathia, in the large villages of Drahiv, Zabrid and Zolotariv, as well as an orphanage in Svalyava, a hospital in the Tyachiv district and finally a ward specializing in children in the Bustyno medical center.

The aid consignments contained the largest proportion of durable food, medicines, hygiene and childcare items, but we also took into account the individual needs of the children and included ample toys, colorful blankets and bedding delivered directly to the institutions by our authorized logistics partner.

In addition, the Foundation did not ignore the support of large aid organizations. Together with the International Teqball Federation (FITEQ), we offered another emergency aid worth several million forints, which the Hungarian Red Cross distributed to those in need.

PROFESSIONAL RESEARCH

The Foundation’s approach is that the basis for effective assistance is professional foundation. To facilitate this, within the framework of a national survey conducted in the years of 2020 and 2021, the Foundation mapped the educational participation of children living in children’s homes, their current education, their further study plans and their vision related to learning and work.
