The Minnesota Hungarians have been supporting the Deva Orphanage (Children of Deva) in Transylvania since 2003. Understanding the continous need of the children we sent donations to help building and renovating houses where they can live. MH members visited the Orphenage and every time they brought clothing, medicine, dental supplies, school supplies, toys adding to the monetary donations. In 2005 Csilla Grauzer organized a 2-week summer camp at Zetelaka, in Transylvania, for a group of children from Deva. She organized fundraiser events for raising money for this vacation, where voluntairs worked with her. Next year greatful children of the Deva Orphanage sent the following Easter greeting to the Minnesota Hungarians and Csilla. (by Agnes Fulop)
