TAGS: Society

The Apostoli charity run by the Church of Greece has announced it will provide food to 1,000 low-income families with small children for 10 continuous months.

The initiative is being undertaken as part of the Give for Greece program, launched by the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) with the support of the Orthodox Church of North America, Greek-American foundations and US citizens.

Families with low incomes – or no income at all – will be eligible to fresh produce, including fruit, vegetables, dairy products and poultry, worth 45 euros per month.

Since its inception, Give for Greece has offered its support to 6,367 individuals, 3,354 families, 342 single-parent families and 124 families with disabled members.
