Dear friends and supporters,

With your support, Kid & Family continues to touch the lives of thousands of children all over the country.

The new school year 2015 started the 13 of September. More than 500 children were desperate because their parents couldn’t afford anymore to pay even for the basic school equipment, clothes, school meal and medical control of their kids. It’s important that you know that there are not free school meals in Greece.

Your donations for the period of June to September gave to 500 children food for one month, all necessary school equipment for the new school year. Donations are extremely important to fulfill the needs of kids in need, especially in this period that schools are open and hundreds of kids of unemployed families are forced to stop their studies when parents are not able anymore to pay the slightest equipment, books, transport tickets, when even the basic food for their kids is not guarantee for their kids. Unemployment rises so fast in Greece that the companies who donated us products, can’t afford anymore to donate the quantities of products needed to cover even the families we already take care off. We have to run all over Greece, looking even for products such as scholarship equipment. Olive oil and milk are scarce.

Every donation allows us to reach in-need children nationwide. 

Thank you so much for your care.  We look forward to reaching more children in need next month, and we cannot do it without your support.

It is this kind of compassion and dedication that makes us proud to be affiliated with your partner network. Most importantly, we would not be able to provide this wonderful product without your support. For every $1 donated, Kid & Family Delivers is able to donate over $10 worth of brand new products to underprivileged families across the country.  From our experience, we know product donations like these help fulfill the needs of disadvantaged children and adults, demonstrating to them that they are worthy of being valued.

Due to the support of our product donors, your gift is multiplied ten-fold: a $30 donation provides over $300 worth of new merchandise to needy families.

Our goal is to raise $5,000, which will provide $50,000 worth of brand new merchandise, such as clothes, books, school materials, home items and more to disadvantaged children and adults who are in dire need of the basics.

Please help us continue our mission by donating now.  Thank you again for your valuable support.

On behalf of our volunteers team

Dear friends and supporters,

Despite the financial crisis facing many Greek families at this time, we feel it is our humanitarian duty to aid the vast number of refugees that are arriving daily from Syria and Afghanistan in our country. These families arrive destitute and ravaged by war, hardship and disease often with young children who are famished and sick, seeking refuge from the horrors they have escaped.

In the entire city of Athens whole squares and public gardens have become the temporary living quarters for these families. Their numbers have become so overwhelmingly large that it has become impossible to support or aid them through any private or public initiative. The overcrowding and unsanitary conditions under which they try to survive pose a greater threat for the general public’s health. It is no longer just the case of saving the refugees, but also preserving the permanent residents of Greece who are torn between helping and surviving themselves in harsh economic times.

Many of the sick suffer from communally transmitted diseases. In order to secure public health for the residents of Greece there is the dire need for creating dormitories, sleeping quarters where the refugees can rest and heal without endangering others. The outpouring of support from all classes of Greek society has been inspiring. Young and old, rich and poor are offering what they can to help those who are in greater need than them. In lieu of an organized governmental effort, private donors have moved up to the challenge of the times and offer what they can to relieve the pain and suffering of their fellow human beings. Unfortunately, these moving offerings of private citizens are not enough to alleviate the desperate situation. Therefore, we must implore you to help us again.

Dear fellow humanitarians and supporters, through your generous donations in the past we have been able to help thousands of refugees that have managed to make it alive to our shores. We have secured food for 2500 people who have remained in our country from September to this day. We have distributed over 4500 kinds of first aid and staples (like soap, shampoo, water, clothing and shoes, diapers and dietary supplements) trying to relieve their desperate conditions.

We are in desperate need of any financial aid/and or contribution you can offer us; this year, more so than any other year, has proven to be extremely demanding in our struggle to help the thousands of refugees crossing through our country. Please spread this urgent message for help to all your neighbors, friends and loved ones. United we can help sustain hope and life for thousands.

With my deepest gratitude and on behalf of all our volunteers,

Dear friends and supporters.

We are in dire need for your donations! 

These donations may be in the form of canned, non –perishable foods or cash.  Due to the current economic crisis in Greece it is becoming harder every day to secure donations from any of the large companies that used to support us. They too are struggling to survive. Just as an example a known business in Greece that used to supply us with 10,000 cans of milk has been forced to drop that number to merely 300! The minimum salary in our country is barely enough to cover a family’s electrical bill and the additional taxes, closings and increasing unemployment only adds to the problems. 

We are witnessing this desperation every day as more and more families are applying for our distributions, trying to secure whatever they can for their children. Hunger is a terrible thing that should not exist in the world, yet it is an everyday reality form many families in Greece. Donations of clothing are the only ones that are continuing to arrive steadily and as grateful as we are for any contribution, the fact remains that we need canned milk and food. At this very moment, we are in urgent need for food donations as we are unable to fulfill the needs of the families we are helping and furthermore, we cannot accept any new applications for food distributions.

Please help us to continue our efforts in offering food and hope to many families with young children who are struggling to provide for them and are in danger of even losing their homes. Again we cannot stress enough that any contribution makes a huge difference in someone’s life. 

We are currently supporting 4,750 families and we hope to be able to maintain our services and our distributions to them.Spread the word of our organization and the services we offer, talk to your friends, relatives and colleagues and please find it in your heart to help us help families that are hungry and desperate.

Thank you for your support

Dear friends,

The new demands for help we receive every day from families in need with young children are scary. Unemployment is increasing fast in Greece. All companies, even the multinationals ones, don’t have any more the capacity they use to have to cover through donations in products the quantities we need to full feel the needs of unemployed families and kids in hanger.

Your donations are more important than ever. We warmly thank you for supporting all efforts we make to give food and all essential to cover the basic needs of young children.

Through your donations to the “Kid & Family” NGO in Greece, we were able to distribute “emergency relief packages” to one thousand eight hundred (1.800) young childrenranging in ages from 0 to 9 years old, received emergency relief packages with products related to: food, personal hygiene, clothing items, shoes as well as essential medicines.

Because of your donations and support, the last two months we were able to cover the needs of 1.800 children instead of 688 we covered three months ago. This miracle happened, against all odds because you are on our site.

OUR EFFORTS FOR A “EDUCATIONAL AND NUTRITION CENTER” FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES

In purpose to eliminate the cost of oil of our distributions and to cover the needs of a bigger number of children in need, instead, we are trying hard to reconstruct a building donated from one of our volunteers. We try to transform this building next to our warehouse in the center of Athens, to a center for nutrition and care for kids and families in Athens.

So we keep on delivering our “emergency relief packages” all over Greece as far as in all long way distances in Attica, but we decided to transform a 200m2 building offered us in “Omonia” square. We are almost ready to start distributions in this building. We still don’t have electricity and all installations needed, but we ll be able at list giving “packages” with products during the day. We will soon post a new project for this purpose, as the situation of the building needs a lot of work to function as a safe place for kids. We already used a small amount of your donations for cleaning, disinfection and painting, we gave all of our heart, work and efforts and our volunteer’s team achieved to transformed the abandoned building to a clean space where we are already able to prepare and distribute more packages. We spend 1.200 euros for this purpose already and we saved for the last 2 months 4.000 euros for oil. This way we experienced the miracle of saving the life of 1.800 more children due to your crucial help.

We strongly hope that with your continued action we will be able to finish all works needed in our new center, so that the high number of 11.000 children who ask for your help.

Please be our ambassadors of hope.

Spread the news and urge your friends to participate in saving children‘s lives.

 

Thank you for your support!

"KID & FAMILY" NGO is so thankful for your donations, which enabled us to provide new essentials to children in need throughout Greece.

With your support, Kid & Family continues to touch the lives of thousands of children all over the country.

The new school year 2014-2015 has started. Your donations for the June to September period gave to 76 children food for one month and all school equipment needed for the new school year. Unfortunately we are in a very crucial point of supporting hundreds of children left without our packages this month. Donations are extremely important so that "emergency relief packages" arrive to all families and kids in need we take care of, especially in this period that schools are open and hundreds of kids of unemployed families are forced to stop their studies when parents are not able anymore to pay for the slightest equipment, books, transport tickets, when even the basic food for their kids is not guaranteed. (There are no school meals in Greece!!! ). We try hard to help children keep on attending their school classes.

Unemployment rises so fast in Greece that the companies which used to donate us products, can’t afford anymore to donate the quantities of products needed to cover even the families we already take care of. We have to run all over Greece, looking for products. Olive oil and milk are scarce. This year the production of olive oil was extremely low in the country! Thus, all of your donations paid for all the quantities of these basic alimentation products, oil and milk, as far as school bags, note books, books, etc.

We are no longer able to pay even the insurance of mini vans we use to distribute our "Relief Packages" to the families in need and we are forced to distribute in the streets this month. Next month with the winter coming this will be impossible! So we urge you to talk to your friends, families, collegues about this difficult situation we experience, so that we gain next month the opportunity to distribute to all families as we did in the past.

Every donation allows us to reach in-need children nationwide.
We would not be able to get these wonderful donations to some of the neediest children in the country without your support. Thank you so much for your care. We look forward to reaching more children in need next month, and we cannot do it without your support.

Please help us continue our mission by donating now.  Thank you again for your valuable support.
