Medical Packages have been donated to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea (known as the Ebola epidemic region). This virus has affected more and more territories in these countries, and the prognostics aren’t good. The Hungarian Grand Priory has been a key-contributor. 

The Office of the Secretary of State, responsible for the international cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Affairs, has cooperated with civil and ecclesiastic organizations for sending altogether 22.000 items, like 1000 rubber boots, rubber gloves, 500 medical protective glasses, 500 medical protective capes and furthermore single use healthcare protective packages, all offered for the fight against the epidemic. These donated packages are part of the contingent forwarded by the help of the European Union to the ‘Ebola Epidemic Region’.

“The situation in this region is so bad, that the travelling opportunities have been eliminated making these countries totaly isolated. No drugs and protective equipment can enter, nor can the medical staff be changed. The indigenous population attacks from time to time the hospitals and some physicians died as a consequence. The situation is dramatic”: told at a press event by Dr. István Mikola, Secretary of State responsible for the international cooperation.

The Grand Priory of Hungary has joined these actions in cooperation with the Hungarian Mission  in Malta, the Hungarian Red Cross, the Baptists Mission and the Service of the  Hungarian Reformed Church.
