Support shift during snow storm in Athens
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. In 2022, 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.
Annually Emfasis supports 3,192 individuals with more than 20 relief programs, while the hours of volunteer work amount to 3,725. During the last 3 months Emfasis has been able to provide basic necessities, psychological support and perform 53 specially designed shifts in the Attica region. Donors have raised €2,392 through the platform of GlobalGiving, getting a step closer to the goal of €3,253. This amount has contributed towards support provided to people in direct need of survival items, especially during the Christmas period as well as the storm Elpis that hit Attica between 23 and 26 of January with harsh conditions for those living under the poverty line or in the street.
With the threat of a new wave of COVID-19 lingering and the consequences of the ongoing situation in place, 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.
