null Landscaping at Balassagyarmat-based Ipolypart Fészek Children’s Home

The modernisation of the Balassagyarmat-based Ipolypart Fészek Children’s Home, which is a part of the ombudsman’s children’s home renovation programme, continued with a landscaping effort. On 9 April 2024, the staff members of the Nógrád County Police Headquarters, the Office of the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights of Hungary, as well as the foresters of Ipoly Erdő Zrt planted as many as 250 shrubs, including privets, spiraeas, lily-of-the-valley shrubs and butterfly bushes. The shrubs were provided by the Nyírjes Non-Profit Organisation for Nature Conservation and Education. 


Commissioner for Fundamental Rights of Hungary Dr. Ákos Kozma, Brigadier General, Head of the Nógrád County Police Headquarters Dr. Gabriella Somssich and CEO of Ipolyerdő Zrt. Mr. László Kiss took part in planting. 

The ombudsman’s children’s home renovation programme was launched in 2021, with the involvement of State Secretary for Forests and Land Affairs Mr. Péter Zambó and Lieutenant General, National Commander of the Hungarian Prison Service Dr. Tamás Tóth.
