PETŐ INSTITUTE: The Pető Institute in Budapest, Hungary, is a conductive education therapy center that supports 100+ children with cerebral palsy to live more independent lives.

DÉVA FOUNDATION: The Déva Foundation - led by Father Böjte -  runs over 50 day-care centers in Transylvania and 15 homes throughout the region and helped over 1500 poor and orphaned children receive education, housing, clothing and a dignity of life. The Foundation has received several international awards for its dedicated humanitarian work.

CCE weCARE PROGRAM: Through CCE’s Highlighs of Hungary Award Winning weCARE Medical Supplies Program a group of committed volunteers is working together with a Minnesota-based Medical Center to collect, organize and facilitate basic medical supplies donations to hospitals in need throughout Hungary and regions with Hungarian minorities mainly in Transylvania (Romania) and Subcarpathia (Ukraine). The goal is to be good stewards in the community and reclaim useful supplies that would otherwise be sent to a landfill. $600,000 worth of donated basic medical supplies have been collected, sorted, shipped and distributed to clinics and hospitals in need throughout Hungary and in regions with Hungarian minorities in Transylvania (Romania) and Subcarpathia (Ukraine) since 2016. Volunteers are always welcome. It is social, fun and guaranteed to inspire you.
