16.04.2023 Life saver- Princess Maja saves man's life
On the occasion of an animal welfare project to rescue street dogs, Princess Maja visited Hungary and went for a walk with some dogs along a river. Some other people and a cyclist were also there. When she brought the dogs back she had a strange feeling about the cyclist. Intuitively, Princess Maja decided to turn around and have another look. She ran back to the river and saw the bicycle lying on the ground on a small bridge, but no man. She looked down from the bridge and saw the lifeless man floating face down in the river. Maja Princess of Hohenzollern jumped into the river, which had a water temperature of 8 C, and pulled the man to the bank. He must have been drunk and fallen off his bicycle into the river. He showed no reaction and his face and hands were blue. Princess Maja rolled the man onto his side, knocked on his back to free his lungs, spoke loudly to the man and performed cardiac massage. After some time, the man began to gasp and breathe again. A cyclist passing by then called the ambulance and it later picked up the man. Princess Maja stabilised the man (60 years old) in the meantime, held his hand and talked to him.

Princess Maja von Hohenzollern, together with Hungarian animal welfare activist, met with the Minister of Animal Welfare Peter Ovadi at the Ministry in Budapest. They discussed the introduction of animal welfare education in Hungarian schools, as well as neutering and adoption programmes to rescue and control the population of street dogs. The abolition of killing stations is also an urgent concern for which Maja von Hohenzollern has been working for many years in animal welfare and with her "Heart for Strays Foundation". Princess Maja pleads for the legal recognition of animals as living beings, because this would be a milestone in animal protection, which would also make crimes against animals more punishable under criminal law. Animal Protection Minister Peter Ovadi was very open and cooperative. He clearly said that Hungary wants to become a leading nation in animal welfare. That is a good step!

Co2 neutral energy systems with which one can independently generate and save electricity are the future and, in view of the rapid increase in energy costs, are in tune with the times.
