Magyar Rákellenes Liga – Hungarian Cancer League (Hungary)

Scope of organisation

CANCER support organisation (non-CLL specific)


MRL has been involved in the fight against cancer since 1990 as a non-governmental organization.

Our most important tasks are: health education, raising awareness of the importance of early detection and self-examination, organizing and promoting screenings among the population.

We support patients and their relatives with professional, legal and spiritual assistance, and we help them with their rehabilitation through club sessions.

We organize courses for doctors and nurses, we train volunteer helpers.

We support healthcare institutions with funds purchased from fundraising.
