Melissa Orphanage for Girls - Renovations - Stavros Niarchos Foundation

Melissa Orphanage for Girls

To support the relocation of the Orphanage’s administrative services into a new section of the Orphanage’s premises, as well as for the execution of renovation works at the Orphanage’s main building.  
Melissa Orphanage for Girls was established in 1921. It accommodates 28 girls aged 10 to 18 years old who have been removed from their families following a court order due to instances of maltreatment, abuse or abandonment. The goal of the Orphanage is to substitute as well as possible the care and nurture that would have been provided within a healthy family environment.
