The very special wish of Gergő was to meet English-speaking children and to learn English. Let's hear his own words:


Why do you like to learn English?

-I have never think about it. Actually I don’t know. Talking English is funny.

How did students of the American International School of Budapest teach English?

- Playfully. Sometimes on Skype, sometimes face-to-face. For example, it was funny to play the game of “Rock, paper, scissors” in English or “Simon Says ...” circle game or the English name of the word cards showing on Skype. I was interesting to match the words and the pictures in the illustrated Hungarian-English dictionary.

I use the plush wolf – that I got for Christmas - every time when I sit down to watch TV, I take it in my lap. We haven’t played the board game yet, but I would be happy to try it with you...

Why are you interested in meeting children of different nations?

- To make me understand with many nations.

Are the students of the AISB (American International School of Budapest) different from you?

-No, they are not. The only difference is that they can speak many languages.

Have you found anything interesting among the AISB’ students?

- At the international festival I tasted many delicious food and I specially liked the almond- apple pie, which we bought at the Russian stand. Students of the school were happy and they enjoyed dancing. I was most inspired by fun and delicious food.

Could you return their kind attention?

-Yes, I said thank you for hosting me at the festival and for the gifts I had got at their visit.

What do you think the children could learn from you?

- How elaborately I speak, that’s all I can.



Many thanks to the students and teachers of The American International School of Budapest for realising Gergő's wish!

Kinga just came out of the hospital a few days ago, but we already had the opportunity to visit her. She immediately examined the requested pink Hello Kitty bike. She beamed with joy and tried it out right away. We thank the students of the German School of Budapest for the fundraising!

Another dream come true through Magic Lamp and the goodwill of "cooking-fan" adults.

Corinthia Hotel Budapest hosted a special charity cooking event. A small team of Fundamenta-Lakáskassza Building Society were given the chance to get acquainted with the interesting spices and delicious dishes of Indian Cuisine and to support a "Good Cause" at the same time.

The ceremony started with Márta Róna (PR Manger of Corinthia Hotel Budapest) and Márta Felkai (on behalf of Magic Lamp) greeting the participants.
The highlight of the evening was, of course, when the little crew handed over their present to Nandi, who was overjoyed to try his new instrument to entertain the audience.

Nándi has been playing the piano for years, but his dream was to learn how to play the saxofon. The instrument however is very expensive and Nándi’s family could not afford it.

After that the hotel's representatives invited the guests for a nice walk around the Hotel. They were shown the beautiful ballroom, the Presidential Suite and the Spa Center. At the end of the tour Nándi and his parents had to go back to the hospital where his medical treatment takes place, and the exciting cooking could begin.

With the guidance of the chefs, Péter Bolyki and Lucas Patole from India, the participants learnt special cooking practices while preparing their own delicious dinner. The first item on the menu was "Mango Lassi", followed by the preparation of the vegetable stuffing. Some were getting busy and some still needed to warm up during the preparation of the buttered chicken, but everyone took part in the preparation of the pasta of Samosa. The team ate what they cooked, and everybody had a wonderful time.

We would like to thank the management of the Corinthia Hotel Budapest and the support of the Fundamenta-Lakáskassza team for participation and their support.

Three excited girls were waiting for me at the Liszt Ferenc Airport on 05th 04. 2013 in the early hours. There was a common contact among them: their dream was to visit Eurodisney. And this wish seems to be granted. Their mums came of course with their daughters. In our company there was a kind doctor, too. We have become a very good team!!

The girls were afraid of flying, but there was no problem, the flight was very pleasant. The captain promised the girls to visit the cockpit after landing. The girls took a seat in the captain’s chair, which they enjoyed very much. A lot of photos were taken of course.
The next surprise was the TGV. It took to get the train to Disneyland 10 minutes. The distance was 32km. It was great to see, how fast the trees were „running” beside the train.

How great was the astonishment, when the group caught sight of the hotel! Our comfortable rooms were on the ground floor so the doors of the rooms overlooked a very large park in the middle with a lake. The little girls ran from one room into the other of course through the park and they told us about their experiences.

And the main attraction was itself the Disneyland Park. The little team could not get over the astonishment when we arrived to the main gate. They could not say any words for any seconds. A row of photos were taken naturally.

After entering the park the children could not choose among the big varieties of great number of entertainment possibilities. We agreed that I will spend the Friday afternoon with Luca and her mother. My Saturday morning belonged to Dia and her mother, and I was with Lotti and her mother together on Saturday afternoon.

The girls tried out almost every switchback; they rode saddle horse, travelled by coach, by boat, by ship, by small railway around the Disneyland. Lotti flew more times by spaceship, too. The Ghost Palace and Aladdin and the Magic Lamp could not be left out. The great Show was fantastic!!! Favourite fairy heroes were marching through the Main Street. Photos could be taken about them and with them, as well, our children asked for signatures from them.

Luca, her mum and our doctor went for a short excursion to Paris, where they visited the Notre Dame, too.

Our little group came back to the hotel every evening filled up with experiences. The girls forgot their illness, they enjoyed every moment being in Disneyland.




They all grateful to Magic Lamp Foundation for these three fantastic days!!

Many thanks for their support to grant Diana's wish to Eurodisney, Bunge Növényolajipari Zrt. and Földgázszállító ZRt.

The long - awaited smile...

The 15 years old Nóri’s life is recently about her illness and its treatments. Nowadays the hospital is her second “home” till she gets better.

Nóri’s wish from the Wishing Lamp was to go to a ‘One Direction’ concert. She listens to the band’s songs when she has time and her room is full of posters about them. If I would like to know something about the group, it’s the best to ask her, because her knowledge of them is endless. It came to our attention that the band is about to give a huge show at the O2 Arena in London after Easter. The foundation’s team – with helpful supporters – immediately organized that Nóri could be there. Although her health was in question till the last day. She got the final permission for the trip in the very last minute – the day before departure.

So the next day, we were on our way to London. It was a matter of hours, and Nóri found herself in the busy and rainy city of London. On the day before the concert, we got to visit the famous Hyde Park and we saw the city from the London Eye, and of course we couldn’t miss out the Double Decker and the fish and chips.

When the big day of the concert arrived, Nóri was waiting for the program cheerfully. We even got to take a photo of her - which she doesn’t like usually – but this was a special day. In the last minutes before the show, Nóri was waiting for her favourites with thousands of other fans. This was the time when we saw real joy and a huge smile on her face!

Thanks to our helpful supporters, and doctors for making this dream become true and aiding us to bring back a long anticipated smile.




We are grateful for the generous support of the Provident Pénzügyi Zrt!!!
