Hungary offers Sri Lanka HUF 9 million emergency aid

In the wake of a string of terrorist attacks against Christians in Sri Lanka, Hungary has offered HUF 9 million in emergency aid

In the wake of a string of terrorist attacks against Christians in Sri Lanka, Hungary has offered HUF 9 million in emergency aid, state minister for the protection of persecuted Christians, Tristan Azbej said on Monday.

According to Rmx.news, Azbej said the most urgent task now is to show survivors and orphans that Hungary cares and the country will also look into what additional assistance it can offer.

Azbej added that besides compassion, it must also be made clear that these terrorist acts were specifically targeted at Christians, a fact some tried to ignore.

He also said Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world, with some 4,000 people falling victim every year, but major international organizations and Western governments are not tackling this issue.

This is why the government established the “Hungary Helps” program in 2016, Azbej said.
