25 Éves az Ökumenikus Segélyszervezet


Magyar Posta is marking the 25th anniversary of the foundation of Hungarian Interchurch Aid by issuing a commemorative stamp. The stamp bears the logo of Hungarian Interchurch Aid, which is made special by embossed printing. The new stamp was designed by the graphic artist György Kara and produced by ANY Security Printing Company. The stamp will be on sale in first-day post offices and at Filaposta in Hungary from 17 May while stocks last, but may also be purchased from Magyar Posta’s online store.

Okumenikus_bg_sHungarian Interchurch Aid is one of the country’s largest charity organisations that also enjoy international recognition. It was founded in 1991 by Hungary’s historic Protestant and Orthodox Churches to enable the Churches to offer a professional helping hand to people in need. The collaboration of the founders today helps those in distress and deprivation as an ever expanding community of professionals, volunteers, donors and responsible corporate partners. The concentric circles of the logo also appearing on the stamp that mark the charity’s silver jubilee, which form an extended hand and an angel, represent the community that helps through the power of collaboration.
Hungarian Interchurch Aid provides aid to those in need in Hungary and in the Carpathian Basin, and as a member of the international community regardless of nationality, religion and ideology, in accordance with the strictest professional and transparency rules. Hungarian Interchurch Aid, as the only Hungarian member of the Geneva-based ACT Alliance of some 140 faith-based charity organisations, has conducted aid programmes in almost 40 countries over the last 25 years. In Hungary the priority goal of the charity organisation’s national network of institutions and its aid programmes reaching thousands of families is not only to provide emergency assistance but also to offer opportunities to break out of poverty to all those who are themselves willing to act to this end. This endeavour is expressed by the organisation’s motto, which also appears on the jubilee cover: “Food for the starving, homes for the homeless, chances for the deprived!”
