Channelling the 'C' in IHBC
Ireland has a history of volunteerism, with people of all ages actively involved in their local communities and thousands volunteering abroad. Sometimes, though, language barriers can prevent us availing of similar opportunities when we’re living in other countries. The IHBC is proud to support a number of charitable initiatives in Hungary and actively seeks opportunities for our members to give something back to our community. Whether it’s planting trees or painting rooms at a state-run orphanage in Göd or renovating and fitting out a nursery in Szilaspogony, our activities inevitably give us back far more than what we give ourselves. A popular annual charity event is our involvement with the Letters to Santa programme, where children, who often have never before received anything they’d asked for, get to write a letter to Santa. We then do what we can to match these letters with Santas from our community. We have no excuses. The opportunities are there. We all have something we can contribute, be it time, money, or expertise.
To get involved in our charitable initiatives, keep up with what we’re doing by subscribing to our newsletter or following us on Facebook.
Corporate Social Responsibility
CSR is good business practice. Showing your stakeholders (including your employees) that you care about the community in which you operate makes sense. For companies new to Hungary, establishing a CSR record can be tough. We can work with you to identify opportunities to engage with CSR and provide charitable initiatives for you to get involved in. Contact us, putting CSR in the subject line.
