12 JUNE 2014 / Inauguration of the Melissa Orphanage for Girls

Today, marked the inauguration of the Melissa Orphanage for Girls after a relocation of the Orphanage’s administrative services, in addition to renovation works on the Orphanage’s main building. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation provided support for both actions.

Established in 1921, the Melissa Orphanage for Girls accommodates 28 girls between the ages of 10 and 18. The Orphanage aims to substitute the care and nurture that would have been provided in a healthy family environment as much as possible.
