Sant'Egidio with the refugees in Hungary: the walls collapse with solidarity

They continue the reception of refugees in transit to North Europe

printable version

In Hungary, where a 175 km wall intends to stop the hope of women, men and children fleeing war and terrorist violence, Sant'Egidio continues, with poor means but with tenacity, to represent a point of reference and reception.

Walking with them, meeting them, offering them not only the refreshment of hot drinks and nutritious food, but also the warmth of an embrace that helps to remove the noise of war and the pain of inhospitable hostility.

For this reason, a group of the Communities of Sant'Egidio in Hungary reached Bicske, a town not far from Budapest, where they set up a centre for asylum seekers that has seen the passage of thousands of refugees and now houses 175 people.

"Welcome, we love you", "Eid Mubarak" (traditional wishes for the Muslim festival Eid al-Adha, that is, the Feast of Sacrifice): little was enough to provoke overwhelming joy, punctuated by songs and dances of their own lands.

On the days after that, representatives of the Community of Rome, Brno, Budapest and Pécs went to Hegyeshalom-Nickelsdorf, on the border with Austria, and walked across the border with them to symbolise the bond of brotherhood and the common destiny.
