After making preparations to find ways to support the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, the CIC was finally able to facilitate the opening of a food distribution station for refugees over the past few days.
500 meals on Saturday and 300 breakfasts on Sunday were served over the course of the weekend at the Hungarian border town of Záhony. A potato paprika stew was served on Saturday; the breakfast consisted of sausages, bacon, and omelettes.
The effort was only possible due to the excellent collaborations between the CIC Administrative Office, the local mayor, as well as several volunteers.
Starting this week, the Diana Club of Hungary will be providing assistance in keeping our stations in operation going forward.
We would like to thank all involved that helped get this initiative off the ground.
We also extend our gratitude to the generous donors that have helped us raise EUR 10,510 to date. As of now, EUR 4,165 has already been spent in aid of those crossing the border from Ukraine.
This is, of course, an ongoing effort and your donations are still needed to help support those in need.

The CIC is assisting ongoing humanitarian efforts at the border in collaboration with the National Hunting for Charity Organisation (OJV KNP Kft.), the European Federation for Hunting and Conservation (FACE) and the Hungarian Hunters’ National Chamber (OMVK).
We are in constant contact with hunting associations in Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Poland in order to assess where our resources and network can be best used.
