We are looking forward to the mindset programs of the Salva Vita Foundation for professionals and interested adults who want to help people with disabilities to get along! We offer our guests various programs, community events and creative workshops in the Szeglet Community Space! Formerly the Amber Pharmacy was empty in Albertfalva Street in Budapest for years. At Christmas 2017, the Salva Vita Foundation received a hearty announcement that its application has received generous support from THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS in Denmark. Salva Vita purchased the property from a grant source in the spring of 2018 to create a new community and creative space where it also provides training and employment for people with disabilities. Szilvia Heidl (Salva Vita Foundation) and Kinga Wertheimer (Tunki-Tunki), the creators of the Szeglet Community Space, soon found each other in the realization of their plans to create a vibrant and diverse creative community. Find out the story of their encounter here!
