The mission of the Children’s Nutrition Fund (CNF) is to provide food and education for children who would otherwise have to go without in Central-Eastern Europe. Firstly in Hungary, and eventually within the entire region.
Concert for children in need
The Children’s Nutrition Fund (CNF) is sponsoring a concert to support starving and malnourished children in Hungary.
The proceeds from this event will be used to fund the Pharmacy for the Poor, which will provide medication free of charge to the children of ten families living in extreme poverty in rural areas in Hungary.
