We support children and families who are living at or below the poverty line. Our beneficiaries are families that struggle to meet their basic needs, yet strive to offer their children the opportunity to have a better future. The families we assist are either single-parent families or families with one or both unemployed parents that have been severely affected by the country’s long, ongoing financial crisis, with children of all ages and with many urgent needs.
We work with the Social Services of Municipalities who bring us into contact with the most vulnerable families seeking assistance in their area. Today, in cooperation with the Municipality of Aigaleo, we are providing 14 children aged 1 to 16 years old: nutritional assistance (vegetables, fruits, dairy products, meat, fish etc.,) monitoring by a pediatrician, a dentist and a nutritionist, as well as English language lessons and after-school sports activities for the older children, while we are also providing regular counseling sessions for the parents.
In total, including the children and their caretakers, 28 members of the families are benefiting from our services.
