State Secretary Tristan Azbej said Hungary continues to excel in protecting Christian culture and the persecuted Christians.
Azbej, the foreign ministry state secretary in charge of the aid programs helping persecuted Christians, said on Thursday that Europe’s Christian culture should be protected and “aid should be granted where problems arise rather than bringing the problems over here." The state secretary said on Facebook that over the past six years, the Hungary Helps program had enabled nearly one million people to stay in their native land rather than leave it. “This year we rushed to help the African faithful attacked by terrorists, and celebrated together with Iraqi Christians that a new school opened to replace the one destroyed by the Islamic State,” he said. Those persecuted for their Christian faith can continue to rely on Hungary and its people, even under the current difficult circumstances, Azbej said.
