PROJECT UPDATE Greek Homeless Support in COVID-19
By Emfasis - Volunteer
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for all the people around the world and its consequences are seen throughout a series of issues. Nevertheless, people living below the poverty line are now more vulnerable than ever, facing the devastating impact of this pandemic. Emfasis continues to implement relief programs in order to address the needs of people in homelessness, supporting them through humanitarian aid, counseling and meeting their different individual needs.
With 2 mobile support units, Emfasis has been able to provide basic necessities, psychological support and perform specially designed shifts in 40 different municipalities/areas in the Attica region. Donors have raised €1,998 through the platform of GlobalGiving, getting a step closer to the goal of €3,253. This amount has contributed towards support provided to more than 6500 individuals, 300 families. The distributions included 1022 hygiene items, 5481 first aid items and 2000 survival kits. In addition, through this fund, Emfasis plans to provide temporary safe housing for individuals with critical health conditions.
With the threat of a new wave of COVID-19 lingering, Emfasis will continue to aid people in a state of street or impending homelessness, especially in such precarious conditions.
With your support, our dedicated teams of certified volunteers will keep on their efforts to impact positively the quality of life of thousands of people, conducting their mission with the utmost respect and discretion for the vulnerable.
