Supporting “The Sfanta Macrina Foundation”
Aim and activities: Sfanta Macrina is a rescue center for the homeless and poor. It supports under-privileged families and children. Since 2005, Sfanta Macrina Foundation is accredited by the Social Assistance bodies (Directia Generala de Asistenta Sociala) of the Ministry of Work, Social Solidarity and Family, as social services supplier for the following services: day-care for children in risk-situations, residential care, and protected housing for young people.
The main concern of the Foundation is that of preventing the causes that generate the homeless children phenomenon. This is why, for the young beneficiaries that have families, the foundation is offering support to develop parental abilities and responsibility.
All the services provided are focused on the individual needs and potential of the children. They begin with satisfying the basic needs, and are constantly complemented by educational activities (support with the completing the compulsory formal education and participation in non-formal education such as clubs, educational trips, and camps).
