As a part of its CSR program: The Guardian Angels Helping Greek Children in Need

The NGO “Mazi gia to Paidi,” or “Together for Children,” has been supporting Greek children facing all forms of difficulty, including bullying, disease, poverty, hunger, mental illness, and abuse, since its formation in 1996.

Speaking to Greek Reporter, Alexandra Martinou, President of “Together for Children,” stressed the organization’s motto: “Power through unity.”

All children in Greece, regardless of their ethnic, economic, or cultural background, can receive much-needed support from Together for Children through its collaboration with over 200 organizations dedicated to protecting children in the country.

When asked what children in Greece need most right now, Martinou highlighted that Greek children need support to realize their dreams for the future. “What the children of Greece need most are equal opportunities to create the future that they envision,” she states.

In order to help Greek children reach their full potential, Together for Children aims to support vulnerable young ones by “ensuring that their basic needs are met,” Martinou told Greek Reporter.

This can come in the form of nutritious food to support their healthy development, medical equipment and treatment, educational tools and support for e-learning, and counseling, all of which Together for Children offers to Greek youth in need through its “holistic approach” to supporting kids.

In hopes of combating these disastrous impacts of the pandemic on children, Together for Children has donated over 470,000 euros’ worth of medical equipment to fourteen Greek hospitals, equipping “intensive care units throughout the country with the necessary machinery to treat patients suffering from COVID-19,” Martinou related with pride.

This donation came at a time when Greece’s intensive care units were near capacity, overwhelmed by the sheer number of patients with the coronavirus requiring intensive treatments, such as intubation.
