Background: Amidst the ruins left by the recent floods an intensive rebuilding programme is underway in the Szeged region of Hungary.
Beside the ruins of what once were homes before the River Danube and its tributaries broke their banks and flooded across the low-lying Hungarian country side, stand piles of building materials.
Even as the wreckage is cleared architects and builders are planning the shape of the future.
In the villages of Csenger and Szamosbecs in the Szeged area the street are still strewn with wreckage and rubble, but architects and builders, who have come from all over Hungary, are assessing the extent of the damage, listing what is re-usable, and laying the foundation for new villages.
In the village of Szamobacs restoration work is already well in hand. Considerable progress have already been made. Foundations are being laid, and many new homes already have walls up to roof level. The first complete house was finished within a week of work commencing.
