The Foundation is a bridge between the Carpathian Basin and the Hungarians of the Diaspora. Its mission is to give information about the events of Hungary and the results of the Hungarians which are value-driven but rather unique. Its members are Hungarians living in other countries and foreigners, who are successful and fond of Hungarian culture. Our foundation wishes to create a complete and more correct picture of Hungary and Hungarians with the help of its increasing community. Today and Ungarn Heute news portals of the Foundation supply those foreigners with information day by day, who are interested in Hungary.
