Together, we provided meals to 629 children in need

Together for Children offered meals for a month to 629 children housed in child protection institutions in various regions of Greece through its Easter campaign.

With the invaluable help of famous and anonymous supporters, Together for Children managed to surpass its initial goal and support more than 600 children. The beneficiary institutions have the ability to procure food through vouchers at major supermarket chains for one month to meet the needs of the children they host.

Child protection institutions face many challenges. The rise in prices of basic goods has further complicated their daily management. The goal of this initiative was to strengthen the institutions while simultaneously bringing joy to the children they host.

The success of this initiative would not have been possible without the unwavering support and generosity of Together for Children’s supporters. A total of 139 individual donors and companies participated in the initiative. Specifically, the companies Mymarket, efood, Raycap, Hellafarm, Alpha Asset Management A.E.D.A.K., Qualco Foundation, Nueria Properties MAE, Emicert, Environmetrics, and Real Media Group contributed to the effort.

A Few Words About the “I Offer Because I Care” Program by Together for Children

The “I Offer Because I Care” program was created in 2012 to support children living in facilities or supported by child protection institutions.

More than 200 institutions throughout Greece participate in the program’s network, which annually supports 18,000 children by providing food, essential goods, school supplies, toys, clothing, footwear, and furniture.

The purpose of the program is to reduce socio-economic inequalities and create better living conditions for children and their families, while also helping to upgrade the institutions.

Goods are collected at Together for Children’s facilities throughout the year, in collaboration with schools of all levels, private sector companies, individuals, and the Food Bank. They are then evaluated, sorted, and offered to partner institutions nationwide, according to their needs.
