Inter Relocation and the Budapest Robert Burns Supper
Inter Relocation’s longest standing charitable endeavour is its ongoing sponsorship of the Budapest Robert Burns Supper and its associated charity, the Robert Burns International Foundation.
Inter Relocation has sponsored the supper since 2002. Stuart McAlister was a Burns Supper committee member for 11 years and worked as Chairman of the event for 6 years.
The Robert Burns International Foundation and the Burns Supper are committed to raising money for children in need in Hungary and have raised over 1 million EUR since starting their work in 1996. When the supper first began the focus was on the department of Paediatrics at Semmelweis University Hospital.
However, support has since expanded to hospitals, orphanages and other children’s organisations around the country.
Inter Relocation and the North American Women’s Association
Inter Relocation sponsors this association, which provides a place where North Americans can meet, share experiences, and learn more about their host country.
We were most recently involved with the re-launch of the organization’s Surviving & Thriving Guide. This wonderful publication guides newly arriving expats to places the NAWA members have tried and tested over the years, both in terms of the business’ staff’s ability to communicate in English and in terms of the quality of service provided. Every Forint raised from sales of this guide is donated to NAWA’s chosen charity.
Inter Relocation is the principal sponsor of The Club’s annual Race Night event. Members raise funds via such events for a group of Norbetine Nuns, who work with extremely disadvantaged children in Hungary. Rather than just feeding and clothing children who otherwise might go without, they teach them key skills such as cooking and the English language.
