Dear partners,
Ever since 1999, when the food distribution action began at the Holy Church of St Efthymios in Keratsini, the “GREEK FOOD BANK: Foundation against famine“ has been a valuable partner and has stood alongside us.
A lot of factors have changed since 1999:
– The number of families has risen to 300 from 60.
– The financial situation of the families has deteriorated and keeps getting worse at a fast pace.
– There are now families which live without even the bare necessities: food, electricity, heating, medication, and some of them even without water.
– The economic crisis had a major impact on families that were already facing financial difficulties
– Unemployment has even stricken families which were wealthy and entrepreneurs who were thriving a couple of years ago.
In spite of the major and painful changes, there is something that endured: our partnership with the “GREEK FOOD BANK: Foundation against famine“. It is a partnership that helps us to carry on despite the countless difficulties and the unforeseen developments of this ever-deepening crisis, which is detrimental to families, human relationships and individuals.
We deeply thank the „GREEK FOOD BANK: Foundation against famine“ for its support and constant help. We thank all industries, businesses, public bodies and private persons who participate in the efforts of the GREEK FOOD BANK and we kindly ask them to continue to offer their support, asserting that the GREEK FOOD BANK is active and offers substantial and valuable help to those in need.
We warmly wish that your sincere efforts come into fruition, for the benefit of all vulnerable groups of the Greek society in which hardship abounds.

On behalf of the Charity Centre

Dear Mrs Vasilopoulou,
I would like to thank you deeply for your contribution to the work of our Foundation, as part of the “WE CARE” Medical Assistance Programme for children of refugees and for offering food packages containing biscuits, cakes and infant meals to be distributed to children.
This initiative on your side expresses your sensitivity regarding humanitarian issues and reflects the values of your corporate and social responsibility.
Your support encourages us to continue our efforts to support uprooted children who find themselves now in our country and need our help.
Please pass on my thanks to your colleagues who so kindly contributed to this effort.

Sincerely,

Attention of Mrs Athina Vasilopoulou
Ref. No 36/2014

 

Dear Mrs Vasilopoulou,
We wish to warmly thank you on behalf of the great family of the Refugee Programme, including volunteers and beneficiaries, both Greek and foreign, refugees and immigrants for your wholehearted support and genuine caring for our fellow human beings who suffer.
In 2013, a year when the consequences of the financial crisis became more evident, impacting in an even more painful way the lives of all of us, you undertook to support with sensitivity, love, dignity and genuine Christian interest the institution of the Refugee Programme and our efforts to meet the needs of people who seek help at our Centre.
Your offer in food was and remains a breath of air in the struggle for survival, a balm for the tormented soul and a message that there is still hope and there can be a future for everyone.
We wish to express once more our sincere thanks for your assistance, which we have always regarded as vital for the success of our work.

Thank you once again

Most sincerely,
