The donation was made up of 80 bags of seeds collected at the Veszprém county farmers’ fair, as well as 420 bags donated by the Marton Genetics company group in Martonvásár. The shipment was handed over by István Jakab, president of the Association of Hungarian Farmers’ Unions and Farmers’ Cooperatives (Magosz) and Balázs Győrffy, president of NAK, to the representatives of the Transcarpathian Reformed Church and the Transcarpathian Young Hungarian Entrepreneurs Association in Beregszász. The food made from the produce will be given to the needy who were left alone because of the war, residents of children’s and nursing homes, they wrote.

Not only seeds, food also arrived

According to the announcement, shipments had previously arrived in Transcarpathia as part of the Bread of Hungarians – 15 million grains of wheat program, but since the beginning of the war, even more donations have been coming from the motherland and abroad. Tons of flour, durable meat, canned mushrooms, apples, red onions, computer equipment went to needy families and local organizations, while farmers received seed potatoes, seeds, wheat, barley, oats and fertilizer. The many thousands of Hungarian farmers in Hungary, southern Hungary, highlands and Transylvania quietly set an example of generosity and humanity year after year, helping Hungarian families in need here and across the border – stressed the NAK.
