About the Organization

The volunteers of the Helperek organization provide first-aid medical treatment and drug prevention at various music and sport events. An example of those events are the Hungarian music festivals like VOLT festival, Balaton Sound festival, Sziget festival and Tokaj-hegyalja festival. The organisation has also been present at various marathons in or around the capital city, for example at Sport Sziget, Balaton-marathon and the Vienna-Budapest super marathon. Our patrol teams also provide the first-aid medical treatment at Akvárium klub, during concerts. At Sziget festival our organisation is present with more than 400 volunteers.

Our rescuing system has multiple stages, whereby the most important part is that our specifically trained patrol team keeps an eye on the visitors 24 hours a day, in 8, 10, 12 hour shifts. An other important provided service, is drug prevention. Visitors can come to the drug prevention tent if they have questions or if they want to talk to the specifically trained psychologists. Since the year 2004, we decided to also use the crisis intervention method, which means that our staff of trained psychologists are present all day long at the festival, just like the medical personal.The medical personal is present 24 hours a day. The group consists of well-trained doctors, nurses and paramedics. Having multiple years of experience, we are able to provide fast and professional first-aid treatment.

Starting in the spring, there will be a weekly theoretical and practical training for our patrol team. Date and time can be found on our facebook page every week.  For working with us we provide an entree ticket for the festival, 4 meals a day, a secure place for your tent, a flexible work schedule and helpful team captains. In return, we expect you to work hard and be fully committed.
