Dóra Kanizsai-Nagy, from Budapest, Hungary, has a degree in international relations and began her career in think tanks, focusing on energy policy and democracy. Since 2008, she has served with the Reformed Church in Hungary (RCH) in various capacities – first as a project manager and later as the head of the RCH’s Refugee Ministry. In 2014 she co-founded the Kalunba Social Services Association, an NGO that now actively serves refugees in Budapest. Dóra and her team work towards helping their clientele in both the short and long term, providing services such as housing assistance, employment, schooling programs, language lessons, as well as community building opportunities. “Since the beginning, it has been vital for to me to actively search for the ways in which we can provide practical help for those turning to us. It is very important for me to show how the church can apply abstract theological values in a practical sense,” says Dóra, when describing her work. The refugee mission aims to provide concrete and practical help to the population that it serves so that their clients might lead more full, well rounded, and independent lives as productive and valuable members of society.
