V4 Helps: Stopping Migration to Europe and Assisting Persecuted Christians
Tristan Azbej, the state secretary responsible for assisting persecuted Christians and for the implementation of the Hungary Helps Program talks about the victims of the Syrian violence and the Open Hospitals project which supports facilitating hospital care systems in Syria.
Hungary is committed to helping the communities and families in need in the Middle East and to contribute to the humanitarian disaster caused by the war and to mitigate it. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said so yesterday after receiving Syrian Cardinal and Apostolic Nuncio Mario Zenari‘s to whom he handed over the Hungarian government’s Syrian humanitarian aid document.
It is our country’s firm position that the trouble should not be brought to Europe but that help should be taken to where there are problems.
To this end, he would reduce the involvement in multi-stakeholder international aid programs and instead would focus on bilateral cooperation. Poland has already joined the Hungary Helps humanitarian aid program.
However, the Hungarian government would like the V4, under the name “V4 Helps,” to help those in need in crisis areas during the first half of the year.
