The overprint of the new issue contains the number of the anniversary and the year of foundation.

The International Children's Safety Service was created in 1990 in Hanover through international collaboration which aimed to save the children in inhuman conditions in the orphanage in Csegőd, near Oradea, Romania. Following the example and with the support of the Hanover organization, the Hungarian Association of the International Children's Safety Service was established in May 1990.

Its aim is to support physically and mentally handicapped children, orphans and other children in need of help, to improve their living conditions, to lay the foundations of their future, and to help children’s institutions. The Service was registered by the Municipal Court of Budapest in 1990 and has operated as an organization of major public benefit since 1 January 1998. The membership of the organization and the number of its voluntary helpers are steadily growing, and support is provided through membership fees, donations, expertise or physical work.
