For renovations and purchase of equipment to upgrade the church’s kitchen. The kitchen is essential for the continuance of their Food Aid Program.
The Church provides a Food Aid Program for Veria, operates a similar program, but on a smaller scale, in the city of Naousa, provides financial aid, as well as in-kind donations, to underprivileged families, runs a scholarship fund for students in need, and operates a summer camp for children. A large number of Veria’s Roma children benefit from these programs. Furthermore, the Prefecture of Imathia has a higher unemployment rate than the national average and so the need for the Church’s support is on the rise.
