Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, has confirmed that Hungary has delivered to Jordan medical supplies worth 250 million forints (EUR 613,000) with the aim of improving the healthcare of Christian communities in the country.
“We hope to improve the care of local Christians and Christian refugees from Syria,” Péter Szijjártó said in Amman, where he handed the equipment over. “The world faces serious security challenges, but even in this situation we must not forget that many communities are still severely persecuted worldwide,” he said. Hungary as a thousand-year-old Christian state feels responsible for helping persecuted Christians, one of the most persecuted faiths in the world, he said. The Hungary Helps programme supports ten projects in Jordan, valued at 900 million forints, aiding local Christian communities, Minister Szijjártó said, pledging to keep up the support.
