GYULAJ, HUNGARY, January 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- With the festive season over, it is even harder for people who, for one reason or another, have to live from welfare. Many families have lost their breadwinner or even their job as a result of the pandemic. Unfortunately, this has led to them having problems buying their daily food for themselves and their children.
January is the cruellest time for people living in extreme poverty, as the double family allowance they received in December is not followed by any support this month. That's why, for the fourth time during the pandemic, István Szatmári, President of the Gyulaj Roma Community, turned to Scientology Volunteer Ministers for help, as more and more people told him they didn't know how to buy food for their families.
Responding immediately to the request, the volunteer ministers arrived in Gyulaj this past weekend from Budapest, delivering non-perishable food and cleaning products to 43 families. In addition to large families, other families who are raising children alone or caring for children with long-term illnesses, as well as elderly couples, have also benefited from the donation.
Since the beginning of the epidemic, Scientologists have organized 64 charity campaigns, distributing more than 40 tons of donations to the victims in Budapest, 15 other municipalities and Transylvania. In total, they worked with 29 organisations, including children's homes, relief organisations, other churches, municipalities, hospitals and ambulance services, mainly providing durable food, fresh fruit, disinfectants, cosmetics and other aid to large and small families, single people, the elderly, orphans and disabled children, and health workers.
The Volunteer Ministers' motto is always "Something we can be done about it" and they are calling for unity without prejudice to combat the economic impact of the epidemic.
