One of the largest state-run institutions for the disabled in Hungary will be closed down after the publication of a shocking report by the Mental Disabilities Advocacy Center (MDAC). The report reveals that the Tophaz Special Home kept its residents in horrendous conditions. Adults and children both received care in the 220-bed facility, where evidence shows people were kept injured, malnourished and with excrement on the walls. MDAC thinks this is just the tip of the iceberg and that at least 20,000 patients live in similar closed homes in the country.
