The examples and motivation behind the dedicated work of Magyar Vöröskereszt Hajdú-Bihar Megyei Szervezete (Hungarian Red Cross), Bike Maffia Debrecen and  DEKOM – Különleges Orvos és Mentőcsoport (University of Debrecen Special Medical and Rescue Team) will show how one can act on the personal level to improve our societies.

    We are also teaming up to help our local communities, so please help us by donating, a bar of chocolate, gently used baby or kids clothing, and a can of non-perishable food. All the donations will go to Hungarian Red Cross, DEKOM and Debrecen Bike Maffia for further distribution.

    As a result of the experiences obtained through former creative activities (2000 earthquake in India; 2005 tsunami in Sumatra, Indonesia; 2005 earthquake in Pakistan; 2006 earthquake in Java, Indonesia) the idea of establishing a specially equipped and trained medical team in Hungary aroused.
