ParcelBroker & Desmos
Please note: This campaign has now ended. Thank you for taking part.
With unemployment rates in Greece unlikely to drop soon and 3 million living on, or below, the poverty line, it’s about time there was an easy way to lend a helping hand. ParcelBroker have teamed up with Greek charity Desmos to allow you to send care packages completely FREE.
The campaign is designed to enable people to send a package of food weighing up to 10kgs to Greek charity Desmos. The charity will then distribute the care packages to families in need of them. We are sending up to 500 parcels so if you want to take part in this be sure to get your parcel together quickly and follow the steps below to be a part of the project.More Info...
If you have been paying attention to the media lately you will have noticed Greece has fallen upon hard times. 26% of Greece’s workforce is unemployed, 30% of its people below the poverty line, 17% unable to meet their daily food needs and 3.1 million without health insurance.
The number of families stating that their situation is 'very difficult' has risen. Inability to cope with unexpected financial expenses has increased by almost 60 per cent, on average, in households with children. Such changes have huge consequences for the young. Children feel anxious and stressed when parents endure unemployment or income loss, and they suffer family downturns in subtle and painfully evident ways.
Since 2008, the percentage of households with children that are unable to afford healthy, full and nutritious meals has more than doubled in Greece.
The longer the people of Greece remain trapped in the cycle of poverty, the harder it will be for them to escape.
That's why we need YOU.
ParcelBroker,a UK based parcel delivery company have teamed up with Desmos (Δεσμός), a Greek charity focusing on providing products and services to meet the basic needs of vulnerable groups and individuals, to allow you to send a food parcel weighing up to 10kgs completely FREE.
Every donation helps feed those in Greece who cannot afford to buy groceries, feeding families with children and those in dire need of our help.
Even if you cannot donate, please SHARE this page in the hope that somebody who sees this will, the people of Greece need us.
Why not join the others and help by sending your parcel today?
