Since 2011, Habitat for Humanity Hungary has been publishing an Annual Report on Poverty Housing. At their press event this week, Habitat Hungary presented their 7th annual report and highlighted some major insights.
Through their research, they estimated that in 2018 over 2 million people live in poverty across Hungary. Furthermore, 9 percent of the Hungarian population live in poor housing conditions – flooded tops, no proper sanitation facilities. The housing disparities are even more prevalent among young people, with 27.3 percent living with serious housing quality problems. Affordable housing is increasingly difficult to find with 3 million households paying over 40 percent of their income towards housing; leaving them unable to afford basic repairs on their home.
