MEP Szanyi: where are the millions received from the European Union?

In a Hungary of the (Parliament-adopted) System of National Cooperation, for many children and adults, starvation is an everyday reality.

Among the 4 million Hungarians living below the subsistence level, there are people who hunger from time to time, there are some who, even though they have access to food, cannot have access to quality food at all and there are people suffering from hunger, in the strictest sense of the word, continuously – Tibor Szanyi, Socialist member of the EP writes in a communiqué.
The European Union attempts to change this situation through its Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived. That EU Fund provides aid of EUR 93.9 million to Hungary, which shall be used by the government for providing assistance to the poorest in the form of food and other in-kind benefits in the period from 2014 to 2020.
"According to the operational programme of the government to help deprived persons, more than EUR 13 million would be assigned for this purpose from the EU Fund in 2017. Where is this money? When and how does the government wish to use it? Will children living in poverty and hunger see anything from these EU funds that are intended as a dedicated support for them?", the Socialist politician put this question.
"These are important questions for the purpose of stopping starvation in Hungary. On the other hand, it is also fundamental to speak about this so that the people can learn about the EU programmes aimed at the elimination of poverty and thus, they can make the Orbán government accountable for their implementation", Tibor Szanyi added.
