Humanitarian programs

Since its foundation, our center has been involved in a number of humanitarian projects and seeks to provide assistance to those in need.

The Center, being among the first ones responding to the crisis in Ukraine, began developing emergency and primary care in Transcarpathia and Ivano-Frankivsk in 2014 to address the rehabilitation phase of the crisis. As a part of the project, 32 village health centers in Berehove district received equipment needed for life-saving and primary medical care, and the Ivano-Frankivsk County Children’s Clinic was enriched with 2 new monitors for medical testing.

In 2014, following the clashes in Kiev, we provided humanitarian aid in a value of HUF half a million to care for the wounded. From the additional HUF 2 million offered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, we donated another aid shipment consisting of hospital equipment necessary for the care of the wounded; thereby supporting Ukrainian internally displaced persons in Ivano-Frankivsk and Lemberg.

From 2012, we have also been supporting the school start of disadvantaged children living in Berehove city and Berehove district with a school package and essential school equipment, thus encouraging them to learn and giving them equal opportunities.

The ADVANCE Transcarpathian Advocacy and Development Center intends to support the Transcarpathian population in the framework of the Hungary Helps Program in order to reduce the effects of the health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the Center has been active in delivering donations from Hungarian Interchurch Aid and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary. In April 2020, a shipment offered by the Government of Hungary – 100,000 protective masks and tens of thousands of other protective equipment: goggles, protective clothing and disinfectants – arrived from Budapest to Berehove. The distribution of protective equipment and hygiene items was carried out by Hungarian Interchurhc Aid. At the request of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the organization, which has been carrying out humanitarian and development work in many regions of Ukraine for decades, undertook to deliver the aid quickly to its destination.  In the same year, in October 2020, Hungarian Interchurch Aid handed over ventilators donated by the Hungarian government to hospitals in Transcarpathia. In January 2021, another high-value Hungarian donation was received; this time 50 ventilators which were delivered to 46 hospitals in 10 counties.
