ABOUT US

Foundation

The ‘Easier together’ Foundation for Women’s Health came alive due to personal involvement. Our foundation is the only official non-governmental organization in Hungary that is committed to supporting women struggling with endometriosis. Together with doctors, health care professionals, institutions, organizations and experts in alternative therapies, we provide help to women with endometriosis.

As a self-organizing civil club since 2010 and as a foundation since 2014, we have been trying to inform women about endometriosis through lectures, club days, events and articles reviewed by experts, and help them to get to the appropriate, expert doctors as soon as possible. With genuine information, our goal is to dispel misconceptions, prevention, raising health awareness, sensitization, and breaking down taboos.

Our team

 

 

Adrienn Salamon

Chairman of the Board of Trustees

The year 2009 brought along one of the biggest twists and changes of my life. I was diagnosed with stage four endometriosis, which triggered a real avalanche, fortunately, in the positive sense of the word. Endometriosis was needed for the idea of the foundation to be born.

 

Gabriella Kocsi

founder

When the foundation was established, I intended to create a forum where we provide genuine information about the disease and its possible outcome with the help of specialists and share Western and alternative treatment methods with each other, thus supporting everyone who struggles with the disease in the health care system.

 

dr. Judit Simon

lawyer

I have been helping the Foundation from the beginning as a member of the board of trustees and as a jurist. I support the team from the background. To the best of my knowledge, I am not involved in endometriosis, however, I consider it important to raise attention to it.

János Róbert Szabó

strategy, creative design

I support the work of the foundation as an endo-husband. I believe that the goals we represent will be achieved and endometriosis will be known to as many people as possible, and our work will be recognized not only in Hungary but also internationally!

 

Nóra Schlett

project manager

I joined the team in July 2021. It is a pleasure to work for an organization where, together with a super team, we work day by day to make the world at least a little more open minded and thus more livable for people struggling with endometriosis.

 

Andrea Nagy-Őri

social media manager

In 2019, after hearing the diagnosis of endometriosis, I suddenly found the website of Endometriosis Hungary in the sea of wrong information on the internet, where I finally came across authentic information. Thanks to the specialist recommendation, I found an extremely good gynecologist.

Orsolya Ujhelyi

social media manager

I have been living with my painful menstruation for many years, I could only get through the cramps that got stronger and longer over the years with the strongest medication every month. At the beginning of 2021, I got to know that I have both endometriosis and adendometriosis. I will always be grateful for the live broadcast on Instagram that made me realize that I may also be suffering from this chronic disease. I believe that social media has a huge role in the education about the disease.

 

Boglárka Wanderscheid

social media manager

Due to my personal involvement, I decided I wanted to help the Foundation for a good cause. I believe in social responsibility so I applied as a volunteer. Every woman affected by endometriosis has a story of their own, and I would like mine to continue with helping share information and contribution to the healing of others.

 

Györgyi Erdősi

volunteer coordinator, life coach

I support the work of the foundation as a coordinator, I maintain contact with volunteers and students who do their community service with us. Seeing my acquaintances struggling with endometriosis, I decided to become a member of this foundation because I see the need to support and inform patients. I find that many women need a supporting hand.

Ibolya Gerecziné Kovács

volunteer

It is an uplifting feeling to take on tasks for a noble purpose, especially when it is about the fate of people with a disease that affects motherhood.
Being a mother is the most wonderful feeling in the world.
We need to fully support those who struggle to have that chance.

 

Barbara Porkolábné Csatári

project manager, fundraising

When I found out that I had endometriosis, I kept thinking why me?! After a few years, I already felt that fate had a purpose for me in this life. Now I know that it wanted to lead me on my way. That’s how I found myself and the foundation.

 

Eszter Manger

communication associate

I heard about endometriosis in 2018. As I have it myself, it has been very important for me since then. Not only do I want to help the organization, but I also try to answer questions in social media groups. I am very open about my illness, so others often ask me for advice. I want many people to know this disease and realize that it is a part of our lives.

Edit Békési-Tordasi

project manager, fundraising

My goal is to get as many people as possible to hear about women’s health and how to preserve this treasure. It is important for young people, parents and educators to be aware of what healthy female functioning is like, so that they can detect any deviation in time and easily. Lucy application is a big help in this. Painful menstruation is not normal! Early diagnosis can reduce the number of complications.

 

Katalin Tóth-Berhát

event organization

I’m one of the winners of the Vodafone Full-time Angel competition this year. My aim is to raise the attention of young women to endometriosis, this serious disease that affects hundreds of thousands of women.  In this way, severe surgeries damaging the quality of life and infertility can be avoided. By promoting a new, special mobile application, Lucy, and continually helping the work of the foundation, I want to achieve that those affected recognize endometriosis at an early stage.

 

Barbara Koltai-Szabó

offertory organizer

I have been following the work of the Foundation almost from the beginning, and currently supporting the team from the background as a salesperson. To the best of my knowledge, I’m not affected by endometriosis, but several of my loved ones and acquaintances are, that’s why I consider it important for anyone struggling with this disease to receive help and appropriate information as soon as possible.

Katalin Benke

offertory organizer

After long years and countless examinations, I was diagnosed with endometriosis in the spring of 2021. It was shocking to me how few people know about this disease and that it only gets proper attention when severe symptoms appear.
With my work, I would like to contribute to the foundation’s goals so that those affected receive help and credible information as soon as possible and that they know they are not alone.

Our results

Endometriosis affects more than 200,000 women in Hungary, approximately as many as affected by asthma, yet it is not widely known. It is the leading cause of infertility, and a late-stage diagnosis can lead to damaged female organs and deterioration of other organs.

Through events, awareness campaigns and educational programs, our foundation strives to make endometriosis as widely known as possible on its own and with the help of our supporters, so that the symptoms and pains of women affected disappear as soon as possible and they can live a quality life.

Our researches

The project named FEMaLe is funded as a grant from the European Union’s “Horizon2020” competition, with the participation of a number of European universities, research centers and patients’ rights organizations. In the project, the ‘Easier together’ Foundation for Women’s Health takes part in the professional work of the project as a consortium partner.

One of the aims of the research in the project is to conduct early detection studies to understand the background of endometriosis.

One of the important pillars of the research will be the Lucy application, professionally developed under the control of Dr. Attila Bokor. The free application can be downloaded to android devices for now, but is expected to be also available on iOS in the summer of 2021. We make the details of the research available from time to time on our website.
Further information on the Lucy application is available here: https://hellolucy.app/
