This center will serve up to eighty children by providing them with food, shelter and education, while the H.M.C. will try to find surrogate families to adopt them. With the H.M.C’s initiative, all operational expenses will be covered by the local community’s contribution, as well as by the Ministry of Health. This center will be unique in the whole prefecture of N. Greece and will serve all three remote counties, but especially, the greater area of Alexandroupolis.

The Foundation also provides support for selected arts, culture and educational programs that promote, maintain, and preserve Greek heritage and that demonstrably contribute to the cultural life of Greece.
