Every day hundreds of thousands of families and their children are in a desperate situation

Every day hundreds of thousands of families and their children are facing:

  • Serious welfare problems that have to do with the lack of basic goods, crucial for the sound development  and well being of every child
  • Lack of social welfare structures
  • Social exclusion
  • Free Access to Health services
  • Lack of vaccination for children and medical treatment
  • Lack of medicine and medical care services for children
  • Lack of Mobile Medical Units of intensive care for newborns and children

In Greece the crisis is escalating and children are running the risk of lacking their basic and self-evident rights: food, medicine, education…

Children in Greece are running the risk of lacking what we should be providing them with for their well being!

  1. We’d like to help set up sponsorship for the children in your care from the UK. Ideally, we’d like to sponsor one of the children and help you share your charity so you can obtain sponsors for all the children.
