Singing songs for Santa Claus, boxes full of surprises and finally, opening the presents. This is how the children could enjoy Saint Nicholas’ Day at the housing estate of Ócsa. The students of the Tancsics Mihaly Dormitory and the volunteers of Malteser Youth organised the program together.

Face painting, group shouting, collecting feathers for good energy, Native American Indian jumping, archery, and last but not least: inaugurate children to our tribe. The volunteers of the Malteser Youth of Budapest held a summer camp between 24 and 28 July for the children with difficult backgrounds, coming from Ócsa and the Temporary Shelter of Families in Budapest.
On the weekends we held tournaments and story telling time in Ócsa, we took part in enlightening and motivating discussions with our tutoring volunteers, and concerning our volunteer psychologists program, we asked the young volunteers to share their experiences.
Evening programs of volunteer stories and exchanges of experiences, a barbecue in a boathouse, board game party, quiz night and team building games in the youth office. There was no shortage of community programs this month, while the volunteer psychologists, the tutors and the members of the Ócsa team enthusiastically dedicated themselves to their tasks.
An international workshop, a tutoring program, volunteer psychologists from the side of the institution’s leaders, talent show at Ócsa, quiz night, teambuilding and social events – these were the happenings of the Budapest Malteser Youth group during the month of March.
Let’s do something new, something more exciting, something different from usual. These were the keywords while planning the Christmas programme for children at the housing estate of Ócsa. This year instead of mandarines, chocolate and material presents, we brought special, creative games for the kids and edited a video from their personal messages to each other.
This year Santa Claus has arrived to the housing estate of Ócsa in sneakers and a T-Shirt with Brazilian captions. His reindeers needed to be fed with salty nuts, in order to bring him back to his home in Lappland. The food had to be collected by children in a game with more stations.
