In recent issues we have brought two news items on the youngest of our TOS groups – the TOS in Hungary, which was officially registered as a non-profit organisation in June 2011. As reported, their first long term project was the ‘adoption’ of a flood-affected village with the blessing and support of the town’s municipal officers.
While activities so far have included emergency relief and the offering of gifts at Christmas, the group’s long term goal is to help the villagers build their own active self-help community. To this end, the group camped in the town for three days last August to get to know the villagers better and deepen already established bonds. The team relates the experience here and updates us on what has happened since – a lot!
