Food Relief Program

The food relief program, "It is important to offer", was launched by "Together for Children" Association in December 2013 and has as an objective to provide families with the essentials. Families in need are included in the program for six months and receive free shopping coupons to redeem to large supermarket chains in the country.

Up to now, more than 240 beneficiaries have joined the program for a period of six months. The objective  is to increase the number of beneficiary families  that will have access to basic necessities.

Ways to support the program:
