As once Albert Einstein said: ‘One should not speak of great discoveries or progress as long as there is one single unhappy child in the world’. It was officially announced at a professional discussion organized in Budapest on 9 September 2008 that 18.7% of Hungarian children live in poverty, and 13% of the families can be declared poor. According to the exact figures approximately 19% of the people between the ages of 0 and 24 live in appalling conditions. The situation has worsened since then and more and more people are becoming affected by the consequences of the financial and economic crisis – if we just consider those who are unable to pay their utility bills or repay their bank loans. Every single person having goodwill and wishing to act has a lot to do to moderate this tendency and to improve the life of families and children facing problems.
