FAMILIES THROUGH MATERIAL GOODS: 2008
The Association runs the social supermarket programme in Greece. The programme
provides material support families that are socio-economically marginalized and
who cannot provide the basic necessities to their children. Items such as food,
baby formulas, cribs, diapers, linen and blankets, clothing, furniture, books,
toys are some of the goods that are located in the social supermarket. The
families are also supported emotionally by the social workers that run the
programme. The intent of the programme is to support families so that they, in
turn, can support their children.
