Learning is healing - KórházSuli celebrates 5th anniversary

Student volunteers help ill children with their studies 

KórházSuli has been supporting the education and school reintegration of children with a long-term illness staying at home or in a hospital for five years now. Secondary school and university students of the same age as patients help them catch up and acquire the curriculum. Doctors claim that this activity also has the potential to accelerate the healing process. At the same time, the children involved go through a self-discovery and personal growth process. In 2014, Hungary had about 1,500 private pupils due to illness. Owing to the shortcomings of the healthcare system, these children can only occasionally exercise their right to appropriate education while recovering from their illness. The KórházSuli Foundation tries to fill the gap between educational and healthcare institutions using volunteers.

From 2G to 5G: the evolution of mobile technology

Using a mobile phone was a privilege 25 years ago. With peak-time calls being more expensive, you thought twice before making a phone call those days. Mobile technology has developed tremendously over the past two and a half decades. Today, it is used by nearly everyone to reach their goals in one way or another. In the 1990s, it took about 11 minutes to download the data volume of a DVD, today this takes about 2 minutes on Telenor’s Hipernet network, and these 2 minutes will be further reduced to just 40 seconds with the adoption of 5G technology.
