3,000 Families Receive Food, Clothes, Healthcare from Greek Metropolis of Nikaia

Pravmir.com team | 22 December 2020

Thanks to the establishment of a social clinic and pharmacy and a number of soup kitchens, the Metropolis of Nikaia of the Greek Orthodox Church is able to help 3,000 needy families get the food, clothing, and healthcare they need.

1,600 servings of food are offered daily in the Metropolis’ 16 soup kitchens in the municipalities of Perama, Keratsini, Nikaia, Korydallos, Aigaleo, Haidari, and Agia Varvara, reports Romfea.

Due to the restrictive measures and the large number of assisted families, food parcels were distributed this year throughout the month of December, including meat, oil, milk, pasta, flour, wheat, rice, coffee, sugar, and more, as well as candy and Christmas gifts for young children.

Metropolitan Alexios receives the communities with great love, addressing them with words of comfort and stressing that they should not despair, but believe in Christ the Savior. The families thanked him with great joy and emotion.

Visits to parishes for further food distribution are also planned in the coming days.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
