Red Cross Opens Charity Café In Budapest
A community space ‘Empathy Cafe & Bistro’ has been opened in the heart of Budapest at the headquarters of the Hungarian Red Cross in Arany János Street. Those visiting the place support the organization's charitable work through their consumption.

The organization says Empathy is not just a charity café and a bistro, it is also a community and creative space that provides a place for discussing important social issues in the spirit of empathy.

The investment was made possible by Google's foundation support and is the result of extensive domestic co-operation.

The companies participating in the project offered their own products or services free of charge or provided significant discounts for these good causes.
