”It is a pleasure to give!” - Budapest Malteser Youth
257 tons (the weight of 21 buses) of long lasting food donations were collected, and more than 32 thousand packages were distributed among families and people in need by the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta last year. This year it is the 20th time the charity service is organising their donation collecting campaign called It’s a pleasure to give! (Adni öröm!) before Christmas.
15-20th December more thousands of volunteers and employees will help in collecting, packing and distributing the donations of long lasting food, such as sugar, flour, oil, pasta, chocolate, tea and coffee. The charity service delivers the presents to thousands of people from difficult backgrounds before the Christmas time.
In the previous years several young volunteers from the Budapest Malteser Youth (Budapesti Máltai Fiatalok) also took part in the donation collecting. In 2015 they asked people about the difficulties and problems waiting to be solved at the Christmas donation campaign of the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_vh24jNZiQ
