Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip to Hungary
August 1–10, 2009
Serve with new people, learn about a different culture and help a family in need in Bekescsaba, Hungary. Bekescsaba is the capital of Bekes County. It is located in southeastern Hungary, 210 kilometers from Budapest, or about a three-hour drive. The city’s population is 65,000, six percent of which is a Slovak minority. The renovated historical town center has a lovely atmosphere; Bekescsaba boasts sights of great architectural and historical interest.
We will meet in Budapest and travel to the host site together from there. Once we get to our destination, we will learn about how Habitat for Humanity is serving the community, and we will get our hands dirty!
