Generali Hungary helps the heroes of the pandemic with a unique program
14 July 2021
The coronavirus pandemic has undoubtedly left a mark on our daily lives, social relationships, school and office work, but it has mostly upset our spiritual balance. However, healthcare workers have faced greater challenges than all of us in the recent months. Generali Foundation for Safety is therefore very proud to support more than 1000 healthcare workers in Hungary with 50 million HUF donation. Thanks to this financial contribution the “Let’s Join Together Foundation” is now launching a program that supports these heroes of the pandemic in recovery with the help of mental health lectures, psychological counseling, trainings, as well as community and recreational programs.

Erika Schaub, a representative of the Generali Foundation for Safety and member of the Board of Directors at Generali Biztosító Zrt, emphasized: “The Generali Foundation for Safety has made extraordinary efforts over the past year to combat the pandemic. Among other things, we contributed to the transformation of Buda Health Center's specialist hospital, the National Spinal Medicine Center, into an epidemiological hospital; we helped orphanages; Hungarian Red Cross volunteers and teachers with rapid COVID antibody and antigen testing in our two health screening buses; we supported parents of young children with quarantine storytelling, or we launched a campaign against cyberbullying to prevent the negative effects of increased online presence. The doctors and nurses and the hospital staff have made extraordinary effort for us - and now it is our turn to give it back.”
Generali Foundation for Safety was established in 1995 to support the achievement of social goals that contribute to maintaining health, increasing traffic safety, and creating opportunities for healthy physical and mental development for children and young people.
