The Friends of the Child

Program support

The grant supports the rent costs of underprivileged families as part of the Association’s family support program.

The Association Friends of the Child was established in Athens in 1987 and provides assistance to over 450 families annually. Its priorities are families, particularly single mother families, whose children face health and nutrition issues as a direct result of poverty. It runs several programs including food aid, medical care, personal hygiene, infant care, as well as educational and recreational programs.
