“The Church at Home”
In July 2011, “Apostoli” NGO started implementing the program: “The Church at Home”, dealing with the distribution of packages with food.
These packages, containing food items of daily use (flour, legumes, sugar, pasta, evaporated milk etc), are distributed every month through the parish centers of the Holy Archbisphopric of Athens to Greek families on the margin of poverty.
According to the vision of the Archbishop, Ieronymos, “Apostolli” through this program aims at becoming a supporter of the work of the priests that take care of the people in pain, helpless and powerless people. It aspires to practically stand by the suffering people, any Greek citizen living under difficult conditions and to support the financially weak people.
When the program started in July 2011, 1500 food packages were distributed. This figure is all-the-time on the increase, given the respective increase of the requests received daily by “Apostoli”.
