Children from the Lőrinc kindergarten and patients of the Csodalámpa Foundation had their dreams come true. After adventures at the airport, presents were distributed at the Airport Hotel in Budapest, where each child collected an exciting gift package from Santa Claus, thanks to Malév and its partners Airport Shuttle Minibus, Mondial Insurance and Le Meridien Hotel. The children thanked Joulupukki for their presents with poems, songs and colourful drawings.
While in Hungary, Father Christmas’s programme took him to several venues: he met children from Veszprém and Ajka, twin towns of Rovaniemi, as well as kids from the areas hit by the red sludge toxic waste. In addition he made visits to several children’s hospitals as well as the Institute for the Blind and the Santa Claus Factory.
