The Meropeio Charitable Foundation was established in 1914.
Since 1972, following a Presidential Decree, it functions as a nursing home for ladies with no or moderate income. In continuation of its tradition of social work, utilizing resources of the MEROPEIOU Foundation as well as donations by friends, the Board of Directors, whose members work unpaid, proceeded in 2004 with the construction of a modern Elderly Care Unit of 33 beds in 96 Menelaus Street in Kallithea.
The New Unit was opened in June 2004 by the President of the Republic. Costis Stephanopoulos.
