Our charity program has become a tradition at the Academy. We have been visiting various institutions and events for a number of years now, to bring a bit of joy to the lives of the underprivileged and to provide aid to the trainers, social workers, helpers and teachers who sacrifice their time every day of the year.
We’d be happy to help those in need every day of the year, but the daily schedule of a young athlete is quite busy. Weekday mornings are for school, while afternoons and evenings are occupied by training and studying. Then on the weekends it’s on to league and other matches. In this way, the days, weeks and months race quickly by. However, the Christmas period is still able to bring some calm, so that is when we organize our visits, which are preceded by fundraising among our players, coaches and staff, usually resulting in several sacks of donations by the time we arrive on the scene.
We have a close, friendly relationship with a number of institutions. The days leading up to Christmas regularly see us visit the events or the home of the International Pető Institute, the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta and the Red Cross. We go to kindergartens, temporary homes and homeless shelters and help in whatever way we can, whether it is with donations, manual labor, handing out food, playing sports together or just some conversation.
These institutions are more under the limelight in the Christmas period, but help is needed at other times of the year as well. That is why we try to fit in at least one more visit during the year, the latest example of which was an excursion to the theater organized together with the residents of the Pető Institute.
In addition to the fact that we feel it is important to help, this program also has an educational goal: we’d like to provide an example to the young sportsmen training in our institution, and to form their perspective.
We urge everyone who can help to do so, whether it is through handing out food, a donated piece of clothing, or just a kind word or two.
