Our activity in the field of health is aimed at wellness which can be achieved by the promotion of healthy lifestyles and other prevention programs.
In Hungary, children aged 7 to 14 often lose their lives as a result of an accident that could have been prevented. In order the prevent these events our foundation joined the 10 Years Plan of the National Institute of Child Health in 2010. The ultimate goal is to reduce the number of child deaths in Hungary due to preventable accidents by 30 % by 2020. To achieve this goal, we developed a special education program, BiztiBusz which was launched in 2010.
Thanks to the major donor of the program, Generali a Biztonságért Alapítvány, by the beginning of 2017 we have trained 596 volunteer teachers in 241 elementary schools, creating the opportunity for more than 66,000 children to get involved in this program to have better chances to live their lives in a consciously safe way and pursue their career dreams. The number of participating schools is growing continuously. To find out more about this program, please click here.
When we see the need, we are also open to support partner organizations focusing on special areas of rehabilitation.
Our beneficiaries have been among others:
- The Hungarian Red Cross
- Bátor Tábor Foundation
- Horse therapy Center, Fót
- Kids’ World Bed Theatre Foundation
- Association of Mentally Handicapped, Iklad
- “Dr. Ráró” With Horses for Children Foundation

- and many more …
