What we do
FoundationHelp Children In Greececollects items such as clothes, bed linens etc. Volunteers pre-select everything before it is send to Greece. In Greece lots of rubbish arrive together with aid: broken shoes, shoes with high heels, dirty sheets, disgusting sleeping bags, baby clothes with holes. This is driving the local volunteers crazy: too much extra work while they are in the middle of the misery and chaos. Volunteers of HCIG select carefully all items and only those that are usable are sent to Greece. It is of vital importance, but is very time consuming. If you want to lend a hand, you are more than welcome! Click here to contac us.
On our FB-page you can read what events Help Children In Greeceorganises: tombola’s, a fancy fair with items that are still very useful but not suitable for transport such as summer clothes, bottles of wine and champagne, expensive second hand female clothing, dishware etc. Also temporary collection initiatives to collect specific items for a specific purpose. Or a Greek music and dance evening. Everybody is welcome, all the revenues will go to children in Greece.
