Coronavirus – Hungary supports Palestinian Christians

The Hungarian government has earmarked 20,000 euros to support Palestinian Christians in the West Bank at the time of the coronavirus pandemic, the head of Hungary’s Representative Office in Ramallah said last week.


Csaba Rada paid a visit to Beit Sahour near Bethlehem where he met local Christian leaders and assured them of Hungary’s solidarity and support, Hungary Today reported.

He signed an agreement with the director of the local Greek Catholic school on the Hungarian government’s financial contribution to the school’s maintenance and infrastructural development.

The event was attended by the local leaders of Christian churches, the mayor and Nassar Khamis, Hungary’s honorary consul in Bethlehem. Rada stressed Hungary’s commitment to supporting Christian communities in the Holy Land.
