This is Dorcas Ministries
And This is Our Story
Dorcas Ministries is a Christian organization founded in 1991. in Debrecen by Dorcas Aid Holland. Since 2016 we have been operating as an independent Hungarian public benefit foundation helping 250 disadvantaged families, 105 old people living in poverty, organising camps for 200 children each year and visiting prisons with diffrent programs.
Long term solution
Our desire is to provide a longer term solution for refugees, not just give them a bag of food ans say goodbye but to provide separate accommodation for each family for at least 30 days that can be prolonged for 3 months (even more for some cases), give meals 3 times a day and also help with sorting out their papers, finding a job and school for the children. This way they can have a stable restart and space to make a good decision for the next step.
Apart from taking care of physical needs, we want to help mentally and spiritually. We provide programs (like arts and craft) for kids so they can express their emotions and process their feelings this way and churches are also regular visitors so adults can share their stress and gather for prayer.
Staff of Refugee Center
receptionists, maintainence, cleaners, night guards
We are especially thankful to:
Pharus Foundation & Answer Foundation in Holland who were the quickest to help and provided the budget for 6 months to take care of 100 refugees and make the most important renovations on our 30 year old campsite in order to start the center as soon as possible! Our personal thanks go to Vincent and Ruben in Holland who helped us connect with the right people and formulate our voice to be heard! Thank you guys!
