Hunger is a cruel reallity we struggle to relieve!
We struggle to find food supplies for our distributions to Refugee kids and families.
Our priority is kids’ nutrition and trauma healing. We need to find food supplies rich in vitamins. Even basic needs can’t be covered ,like FRESH or canned MILK.
Since the beginning of 2017 we are facing huge problems with the amount of products companies donate to us, as they have been greatly reduced by 50-60%!!! At the same time,the requests for distributions have skyrocketed!
The freezers we use are no longer enough. Families in need have proliferated and their number keeps increasing. We kindly request your aid in food maintenance by buying freezers to care for children and youths 15-27 that are in danger of social exclusion.
We need to buy a fridge as soon as possible for the safe maintenance of delicate products, especially now that the summer is approaching and the temperature is rising, since we do not endanger the childrens’ health!
A new big fridge costs 4000€ euros , a used one 3000€. We are also in need of VOLUNTEERS! Any help would be welcome! We would be more than happy to work with you in helping refugees and Greeks ! Solidarity and initiative is essential more than ever! HUG humans united globally is asking all of us to support the children living in Greece...
The economic crisis has greatly damaged Youth's health, their incapacity to afford housing, the fact that they can't get any access to universities due to their povrety, ...or even worst they can't afford to feed themselves. The situation in Greece has created a generation of youths (ranging from 10 to 25 years old) that is an impoverished and underpriviledged one. This generation will soon start having kids of its own...
Our H.U.G. FOUNDATION (Humans United Globally), extends Kid & Family's work to ages 15-27 due to the massive number of requests that one organization cannot respond by it’s own, because of the drastic increase in needs in infancy and early childhood as well as adolescence, amongst Greeks and refugees. A second generation has already begun to be destroyed. The data pertain to 2015, but we still lack data for 2016 and 2017. Our mental health center is currently the only institution in Greece for children and young adults. At the same time,the public university appartements accomodating students have been been reduced from 48 to 7 appartement complexes, and the employees have been greatly reduced: from 46 to just 8 people! This is because of all the reductions imposed to the Greek public sector by the IMF!
This is also the reason the number of care workers in state hospitals has been reduced to such an extent. Instead of establishing new care units for children in hospitals, to aleviate the decadent physical and mental health of minors, our hospitals are flooded with refugees with only half the work force they had in 2008. By offering economic support here, you are helping Kid & Family continue to support children between 0-10 years old, and HUG to extend Kid & Family's work to ages ranging from 15-27 years old -the age spectrum most severely impacted by the current crisis. Uneployment rates in this age group are as high as 75% . Meanwhile, the prevalence rates for mental illnesses in childhood and adolescence have risen to 20% of children and youth in Greece according to official Eurostat reports!
Unemployment and mental illnesses are ravaging the tenderest age group of Greece! We are appealing to everyone, to help united as a HUG ,to reestablish the proper coverage of basic needs such as the need for food, housing and the right to education, to the generation most harmed by the ongoing economic crisis. In order for this to be realized, we ask for your support in spreading the news of this important effort of citizens and NGOs like 'Kid &Family' and 'HUG' that care for children and youths in Greece!
Soon we will invite you to a global symposium with the subject of restoration of the lives and dignity of children brought upon by the economic crisis .You will receive an invitation fir participation.
at least on of each ... FRIDGE and FRIZER!
