"The goal of the activities of the Hungarian Down Foundation is to ensure that as many children with intellectual disability as possible are brought up within their own families and live an independent life as an adult. To assure this, the Foundation provides a range of support services to parents, children, adults and elderly intellectually disabled persons."
The Foundation helps in almost every aspect of their lives, and an important aspect is relaxation and self expression. The perfect platform for that is their Day Care Center's Creative Workshop, where disabled individuals get to create freely while enjoying a sense of community. They draw and saw notebooks by hand, and these notebooks are available at Szputnyik D20 in return for a 500 HUF (€ 1,29) donation. They maintain their art project with these donations.
This society was established in order to help and protect Hungary's wildlife and to raise attention to the importance of the protection of birds. They bring nature closer to urban people and educate them on our colorful wildlife we have gotten further from due to our way of life. They research and organize events in order to fight pollution, and they keep on spreading information on nature in order to bring attention to those issues.
Their Pin Campaign was created in order to do so. For a 1.000 HUF (€ 2,57) donation you can choose one from their collection of stylish and artistic nature-themed pins. Their collection is always changing, it includes the most popular wildlife animals and the elements of Hunary's flora and fauna. Find them at both of our stores!
Henriett Merza founded the Animal Home in 1995 that is continued by her two daughters, Heni and Rita.
In 2009 they founded the Greyhound Rescue as the part of the shelter because Heni Merza's legacy is the endless love and respect of the special breed.
The dogs with hard past, like track greyhounds or hunters' dogs are welcomed in Ócsa to find a better place and life and everybody works on to give them to chance to forget their past and move on.
Their fed, care and healing takes a lot of money to the Szent Ferenc Animal Shelter that is supported only by the donations.
In the Szputnyik shops now you can buy the shelter's unique, designer postcards for symbolic 500 HUF that fully goes to the Szent Ferenc Animal Shelter.
Their work is exemplary and followed! Help with us to the Szent Ferenc Animal Shelter and to the Greyhound Rescue!
