Donate to relief programs in Greece supported by The Hellenic Initiative Australia

As we approach the end of 2019, The Hellenic Initiative Australia is encouraging people to spare a thought for the many people in Greece who continue to encounter hardship, particularly during the winter months.

We encourage you to give back to Greece this Christmas and assist us to continue supporting our inspiring NGO programs by making an online gift today.

Thanks to the philanthropic and in-kind support we have received, 2019 has been another productive and successful year for THI Australia.

In 2019, we have made a difference to lives of many in Greece through our partner NGOs:

  • Axion Hellas provided medical services to the remote island communities on Astypalea, Halki, Kastellorizo and Tilos.
  • Boroume collected more than 129,000 kilos of fresh produce across 29 local farmers’ markets in Athens and Thessaloniki, which was provided to soup kitchens, shelters and families in need.
  • Desmos enabled more than 14,000 school children across 172 schools in Greece to participate in programs encouraging volunteerism and the importance of being an active citizen, benefiting the broader community.
  • Emfasis supported more than 1300 homeless and rough sleepers in Athens and Piraeus.
  • Pedtrauma purchased medical equipment to save the lives of young children for the hospital in Kythira.
  • SOS Children’s Villages provided 111 disadvantaged children in Patras access to educational support and daily meals.
  • Tipping Point enabled students at disadvantaged schools in Crete, Kavala and the Western Peloponnese to access career advice through their innovative online mentor program.

With your support, THI Australia can continue to help build a brighter future for Greece and its people.
