“I have been monitoring the activities of the Protection Charity Association and the Hungarian Evangelical Fellowship for a long time. With the help of the creative scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Arts, I was able to take photos in their institutions for a year starting in September 2020 and capture the sacrificial work they do in caring for the elderly, helping the homeless, raising children, and in the life of faith. They do all this despite their increasingly difficult circumstances, with perseverance, love and compassion. Thanks to all of them…” Magdolna VÉKÁS
