A visit to Zsadány

Homes built with the support of Holcim Hungária Home Foundation changed the life of families in 35 villages all around the country. Still, Zsadány, a settlement in Békés county with a population of 1800, is a place of great significance.

Just before Easter, on 21 May, representatives of the Foundation visited the village of Zsadány. Their aim was to demonstrate the achievements of the cooperation, the new homes of children and mothers in crisis, through the shooting of a short movie.

The building of the temporary home was initiated by the Municipality of Zsadány and was supported by the Reformed Congregation and Holcim Hungária Home Foundation. Operated by the Congregation, the house gave a chance for a new life for 25 people since the end of 2009. At the moment, 7 mothers and 18 children call it not just their refuge, but their home. A newly built home, the next step towards the independent living for the families, is another indication of the success of the exemplary project.

Representatives of the Foundation presented a small Easter gift to the children, thus evoking smiles on their faces.


Price Giving Ceremony of Holcim Hungária Home Foundation was held in one of the oldest baths in Hungary, „Császár Bath” in 10th of Septermber 2010.

Winners of the 2009/2010 tender cycle are: Dévaványa, Dabas, Újszentiván and Nyergesújfalu.
