Hungary’s policy of supporting and aiding persecuted Chritians is the first of its kind in the world, it has been revealed.
Tristan Azbej, the deputy state secretary for aiding persecuted Christians, announced in Washington, DC on Wednesday that the Hungarian government has launched a humanitarian program whose practices are drastically different from programs with similar goals.
“Our basic approach is that we speak openly about the atrocities being committed against Christians worldwide, even if this means overriding so-called political correctness,” Azbej said.
He added that Hungary provides aid directly to the communities that need it instead of sending it through middlemen such as governments or “non-transparent” international organizations.
Hungary’s efforts in aiding persecuted Christians were even recognized by the secretary for Relations with States for the Holy See.
The state secretary also offered help in presenting the Hungarian model to other countries and getting them to launch similar programs.
US Vice President Mike Pence said that the United Nations’ more than 160 aid programs did not serve to help persecuted Christians, and the US would circumvent the organization to help.
Republican Congressman Jeff Fortenberry also praised Hungary’s leading role in the efforts to help Middle Eastern Christians.
