Koloszvar is the Hungarian name for the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca.  Situated in the Transylvanian area of Romania, the IKE (YMCA) in Cluj-Napoca is home to the national seat of the Hungarian speaking YMCA based in Romania.


Volunteers from Aberdeen YMCA had the privilege of visiting the YMCA in Kolosvar in 2001 and since then the partnership between the two YMCAs has flourished greatly.


In May 2004, the Board of Directors of Aberdeen YMCA agreed to support IKE in Koloszvar with a small annual donation for the next 3 years.
