The Hungarian government has announced that it will launch a scholarship program to help young Christians suffering persecution in the Middle East.
Zoltán Balog, minister of Human Resources, revealed the news during an international prayer breakfast in Berlin with politicians and religious leaders from over fifty countries.
Minister Balog said that Hungary has already started the application process to fill the 100 scholarships from September 1st.
According to MTI, the students will cooperate with local religious leaders in promoting the project. The Hungarian state also offers scholarships to several hundred Muslim students, the minister added.
“They come to the country legally, respect our laws and culture and will become Hungary’s friends. It is worthwhile to cooperate with us in this orderly, respectful manner. All who respect Hungary’s laws and culture are welcome,” Balog said.
