Church char­i­ties give mil­lions

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Apos­toli char­ity of the Athens Arch­bish­opric and the In­ter­na­tional Ortho­dox Chris­tian Char­i­ties (IOCC) or­ga­ni­za­tion have do­nated 15 tons of med­i­cal sup­plies worth more than 2 mil­lion dol­lars to the At­tica re­gion’s health de­part­ment in aid of cash-strapped hos­pi­tals and med­i­cal cen­ters. The bulk of the do­na­tion came from di­as­pora Greeks liv­ing in the United States via the IOCC, which also sup­ports the Greek char­ity’s soup kitchens, ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams and fresh food de­liv­er­ies to poor fam­i­lies.
