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
