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.
Pharmacy of the poor
The Children’s Nutrition Fund (CNF) starts its new Pharmacy for the Poor program on June 1, 2015, International Children’s Day.
With the help of its Hungarian sister organization, the Gyermekétkeztetési Alapítvány, CNF aims to provide medications free of charge to children living in ten poverty-stricken villages in Hungary. Later, the program will be opened to all regions of the country where children are severely economically disadvantaged.
Magdolna Gyulai, M.D., the family doctor who supervised the pilot program in Bátmonostor, a small village in South Hungary, said:
„When a family’s monthly income is just $110–130 per person, paying the full cost of expensive treatments is very difficult. Mothers have to choose between feeding their children and buying the medications they need.”

Just $350 per month can support this program for an entire village. Individuals and organizations are needed and appreciated to support individual Hungarian villages. Please consider donating today.
