Barnabás House

Once in the summer season, we also organize the week of the elders at the Barnabás House. In addition, we help them as much as possible with spiritual and physical support. 

During our work, we want to help, for a specified period, the needy families, underage mothers, newborns, childrens and students.

Founders and members of the Board of Directors

We have been organizing camps since 1999. Barnabás Veress, who suffered from muscular dystrophy, was the one who dreamed about this house. Among the founding members is Barnabás’ father, Pastor Ernő Veress, who took part in the foundation’s work. None of them are among us anymore, but the spiritual legacy they left behind is still alive.
The current Board of Directors consists of Evódia Budai (Barnabás’s sister), Imre Szász, Imre Kulcsár and Endre Erdő.

Our services

The Barnabás Foundation aims to help adults and children with disabilities. Barnabás House was inaugurated on July 3, 1999, at 25 kilometers from Miercurea Ciuc. The house was built by the Foundation with the help of internal and foreign supporters. Located on an area of ​​125 square meters, this two-storey building is heated with gas, has hot and cold water and it can accommodate up to 17 people. On the ground floor is the kitchen and the dining room.

Physical and spiritual conditions are very important in the program of the Barnabás House. The series courses of the foundation include the situation of people with disabilities and reduced mobility, respectively their integration in society, increasing their confidence that they can be useful even in this disadvantaged situation. The foundation’s activities help to build close friendships.

I am grateful for the help of the foundation and for every moment spent in the camp in Hargita.

During the camps I had the opportunity to observe their boundless love for children.
