A Mothers’ Day survey conducted by Yettel Hungary among its employees and their families has revealed that one in three mothers have only a vague idea of what exactly their child’s job involves.

The world has changed a lot in twenty years, but social problems have not abated and humanity is facing serious new challenges in many fields. The role and significance of the award, established in memory of Honorka Hégető, the RTL Klub reporter who died young in a car accident, and the relevance of the videos and photos made in the spirit of Honorka, are unfortunately as important in 2023 as they were twenty years ago.  Honorka prepared reports mainly about the lives of disadvantaged people, for which she was granted the Tolerance Award in 1999. Her work is commemorated by the Hégető Award, established in 2003 by the foundation bearing her name and awarded each year to journalists and writers who deal with socially important issues that deserve public attention.
