Mission Statement

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.

The living conditions of hundreds of thousands of children in need in the less developed countries of Central and Eastern Europe have been gradually deteriorating as a consequence of the economic crisis. Due to the diminishing domestic resources, no improvement of the situation can be expected from these countries’ own efforts.

For example, in Hungary CNF’s sister-organization, the Hungarian Child Nutrition Fund is supported by some 20 000 individuals each donating around HUF 3000, the equivalent of 15 USD annually. On average 3000 companies support the Fund every year by donating HUF 10 000, around USD 50. As is plain to see, it is not the good intent, but the financial means that are lacking. The deterioration of financial conditions is highlighted by the data collected by the Hungarian Central Statistical Office. According to the data published in 2013, last year real disposable income decreased by 3,7%. Due to the present Hungarian status quo this means an exponentially reduced quality of living conditions for children living in large families.

There are many ways you can donate in order to help us with our mission: Make a one-time online donation, set-up automatic monthly payments, or give a donation in honor of a loved one. (Please get in contact with us if you wish to choose the latter option.)

There is a great need for help from abroad!
