To support medical expenses and basic living costs for severely underprivileged people living on the island of Syros.
Caritas Syros was founded 32 years ago and focuses on individuals and groups in need. They provide services ranging from the distribution of second-hand clothing and fresh food to direct financial support to those who cannot afford important medical examinations or basic living costs. Caritas Syros also actively collaborates with other agencies in Syros in order to broaden the scope of its philanthropic work. They are supported exclusively by a network of volunteers and have helped more than 1,500 individuals in need.
