09 MARCH 2018 / Inauguration of the Renovated Day Care Center of the “PAMMAKARISTOS” Children’s Foundation

On Thursday, March 8th, 2018, the “PAMMAKARISTOS” Children’s Foundation held an event for the inauguration of its renovated Day Care Center, in which support services to more than 114 children and young people with autism and mental disabilities will be provided.

The renovation works were made possible through a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), as part of the SNF’s “Initiative Against the Greek Crisis”, aiming to help alleviate the adverse effects of the socioeconomic crisis in Greece. The SNF has also supported the financial viability of the PAMMAKARISTOS Foundation.

The “PAMMAKARISTOS” Children’s Foundation has completed 65 years of operation, providing housing and support services to people with autism and mental disabilities, aged 3 to 30 years, in order to help them acquire skills essential to their social integration.
