#HelpGreeceNow - Your contribution will make a real difference
#HELPGREECENOW is tackling child poverty as the first part of our humanitarian campaign. We are working with SOS Children's Villages to help support vulnerable children and families affected by the ongoing crisis in Greece.
We have already raised $50,000 in grassroots donations -- now help us raise $100,000 for children and families in Greece. The first $50,000 in donations was matched by the Jaharis Family Foundation, Inc. Now, Nikos Mouyiaris, founder of The Hellenic American Leadership Council, has issued a $50,000 matching challenge if we raise another $50,000. That means your donation will have DOUBLE the impact!
** If we reach $100,000 on this page, that means we will have raised $200,000 in total via matching gifts, so please donate today! **
Active in Greece since 1975, SOS currently runs seven social centers where trained staff of social workers, psychologists and educators provide immediate and long-term support to 1,150 vulnerable families, including 2,260 children. In the past five years, they have reached 4,500 families through critical services, which include:
- Psychological support for parents and children;
- Provision of material goods such as food and clothing;
- Job-focused skills training for parents;
- Educational assistance for children; and
- Referral services for families with issues related to medical care, legal c concerns or social services.
In addition to Social Centers, SOS has three Villages in Greece, where children who have been orphaned, abandoned or have been separated from their parents find a loving, stable home with an SOS mother.
We thank you for your support and for joining with us to help children and families throughout Greece!
