CORFU. With Easter coming The Smile of the Child, on behalf of thousands of children and their families in Greece who are living at poverty level, is appealing to all individuals and organizations to support its collection of basic foodstuffs and other necessities.

Απριλίου / 2019

The Smile of the Child  would like to ask everyone to support this initiative, bearing in mind that the number of families who can’t even cover their basic needs is increasing dramatically.

The shelves at the Support Centres for Children and Families run by the organisation throughout Greece are short of many foodstuffs and basic necessities as a result of the difficult financial circumstances which many people and businesses find themselves in.

Nevertheless, thanks to similar campaigns and to people’s positive response, in 2018, despite tremendous difficulties, The Smile of the Child was able to support 14.356 children and their families living at poverty level throughout Greece and respond to 23,572 requests for material support (food, children's clothing, baby products, furniture).

The donations of food and basic necessities are being collected at the Support Centres for Children and Families throughout Greece.
