Theofilos is an organization founded in 2004, aimed at the support of large families with over 3 children facing poverty. Their main activity is offering direct assistance to large families in poverty, through the provision of basic household items (including food, clothing, cleaning products, toys, books, small items of furniture), which they distribute weekly to families in Attica and monthly to families in the rest of the country. Theofilos supports over 900 families and 3,600 children enrolled in its programs on an annual basis.
