The donation will support the teachers and students of the school to fight against the novel coronavirus, said the release.

Erdelyi Zsuzsanna, president of the school thanked the Chinese embassy for bringing these urgently-needed supplies at this crucial moment and expressed the confidence to win the war against the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the only full-time public school in Central and Eastern Europe that incorporates Chinese into its curriculum just as the local language, Hungarian-Chinese Bilingual School has gained popularity in Hungary in recent years.
