We did it!
We achieved our objective of buying two Injectomat Agilia H perfusion pumps for the Neonatal Ward at the 1st Department of Paediatrics at Semmelweis Medical University in Budapest. The equipment cost 673,100 Hungarian forints in total, and was paid for partly from sales of my adult fairy fantasy novel, Rose Rapson, together with some of my own funds, while a substantial contribution (350,000 forints) came from sales of the 2015 rosé wines of IKON WINERY. This objective was the reason for the special charity symbols visible on copies of the novel and on bottles of IKON rosé wine.
The perfusion pumps are devices specially developed to help premature and newborn babies who suffer from digestion problems - without burdening their tiny, sensitive bodies, the pumps continuously deliver precisely measured amounts of nutrients to the babies, to help them strengthen and thrive.
Thanks to all my readers for their interest and their support!

All set! Double charity hit! On the one hand, copies of Rose Rapson are being given to 160
Hungarian students at 21 high schools countrywide as a reward book for outstanding student
performances, thanks to a successful foundation bid that is financing the project. And on
the other hand, like the rest of the profits coming from the Hungarian edition of the novel,
the price of the books paid for by the foundation will contribute to the purchase of children’s
hospital equipment. Thank you and congratulations to the winning students!
