The AHU in figures
The African-Hungarian Union organizes aid schemes offering long-term solutions; primarily to highly disadvantaged social groups and minorities. It all began in Congo many years ago when the AHU sent Hungarian doctors there in The Children of War humanitarian aid mission. Since then, 13 missions have been organized in six countries: the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Madagascar, Guinea, Malawi and Uganda. Over the years, more than 30 doctors have treated almost 40,000 people, working in the jungle, in schools, in the open air and even in prisons; treating malaria, old bone fractures, AIDS, heart defects and suppurating wounds, as well as assisting in complicated childbirths and curing maladies still unknown in Europe. Some of the patients were able to see a doctor for the first and possibly last times in their lives.
