We talked with multi-awarded head of RCH Refugee Ministry Dóra Kanizsai-Nagy and the Mission’s project coordinator Balázs Acsai about the dangers of the misconceptions about refugees and the Christian attitude towards them.
Abraham and Sarah, the newborn Jesus and the first Christians all experienced the compulsion to flee and the difficulties of integration, but all of them also knew the care of God. The Hungarian Bible Society and the Reformed Mission Centre have prepared a traveling exhibition that urges us to see the vulnerability of refugees.
For World Refugee Day 2015, the Refugee Ministry of the RCH is encouraging anyone available to join in the UNHCR Celebrations and events organised by the ministry. To mark this day we share Sophie’s story, a benefactor of the Refugee Ministry and featured in the poster stories for UNHCR.
International partners from the PC USA recently visited the RCH to deepen ecumenical ties between the American and Hungarian churches while tracing the path of refugees through Hungary, Greece and Germany.
A new United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) report states that the number of refugees and internally displaced people is at an 18-year high with the crisis in Syria being a leading factor. However, the RCH Refugee Mission decided to honor World Refugee Day in a more positive light.
