Appeal for Baby Formula and Milk
Help us by passing on the message to those you think might be able to help.
Unfortunately we are in the position of having to ask, one more time, for your help. We are in need of baby formula for 2 and 3 year olds, creams and fruit creams and evaporated children’s milk. Our supply has been drastically reduced. We usually help 200 infants and young children (up to the age of five) with these sources of nutrition. Because of high demand recently we have significant deficiencies and have not been able to meet the needs of those who need it most.
The Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko has operated with the assistance and support of the municipality of Helliniko-Argyroupolis since December 2011 and during our five plus years, we have had more than 56,000 patient visits from all over the region, and from beyond. Our clinic operates entirely on the help that is offered by people, and the 200 plus volunteers who offer their time and service.
As we have emphasized in the past, we do not, under any circumstances, accept financial donations. We accept only goods and services, which we, in turn, offer without charge to those who need them.
Individuals who ask for our help are from the most vulnerable in society – the uninsured, the destitute, the unemployed, the extremely low paid pensioners.
Contact telephone is +30 210 9631-950 during our operating hours:
Monday through Thursday 10:00 – 20:00
Friday 10:00 – 19:00
Saturday 10:00 – 14:00
