Since waves of refugees cross the Hungarian border fleeing from Ukraine, ISKCON Hungary starts to actively participate in helping those displaced in the Ukrainian-Russian conflict. In addition to keeping up the everyday distribution of food, the Hare Krishna Food For Life program is always ready to help in disaster situations feeding the masses who arrive from disaster areas.
To organize the catering operation, devotees have contacted the relevant government agencies and other charities and are preparing to start the food distribution when the events require. On request from the Embassy of the Republic of India, devotees also participate in the catering of those Indian citizens who are being evacuated from Ukraine to India through Hungary. In addition to getting a warm meal of traditional vegetarian preparation, they will also get a food parcel which will tide them over throughout the day. Devotees will also give spiritual assistance if needed, helping their repatriation in good mental as well as physical health.
Hungarian devotees also organize peace meditations and continuously pray for their fellow human beings and for the peaceful resolution of the present situation as soon as possible.
Any donations to help the refugees are most welcome. Donations may be given by bank transfer to the following account:
