Collection for Refugees and Veganske Hody, 5 Sep

Dear friends, we are a group of volunteers and friends that have decided to do something concrete for the people in need. That is why we are organizing this non-financial collection for people in Hungarian and Austrian refugee camps. We also monitor the situation on the Budapest train station and in case of need we will also allocate a part of the collection there. If you need any detailed information, we are happy to answer any of your questions at the Vegánske hody event or here at the event´s page. Below you can find all relevant information about the place and time of the collection as well as info on which items are needed.
