Menedék – Hungarian Association for Migrants
Menedék – Hungarian Association for Migrants is involved in promoting the social integration of foreign citizens migrating into Hungary, as well as Hungarian and other citizens emigrating from here for more than twenty years.
In the course of our work we have established a complex system of services, through which we have supported and continue to support thousands of refugees and other foreigners in finding a new home in our country. We have colleagues working in Bicske, Budapest, Fót and Vámosszabadi.
We organise and run training courses for professionals who deal with immigrants in the course of their work (social workers, teachers, police officers or armed security guards working in immigration detention centres).
Besides the support of immigrants and professionals, it is very important for us to make the majority society more open toward and accepting of foreigners arriving in our country, as this is an indispensible condition for the successful integration of migrants. In order to achieve this, we try to build a bridge between the host society and immigrants by realising various educational and cultural projects and programmes.
We pursue our objectives as a not-for-profit association independent from politics. We are not involved in direct political activities and do not receive funds or give financial support to political parties.
Our work is supported by many volunteers.
