What is offered:

The Elpis Project provides support to 650 poor families in different geographical regions of Greece through monthly food distributions. The project is funded by Caritas Italy, Caritas Spain, Caritas France and Catholic Relief Services and is carried out by Caritas Greece in collaboration with Caritas Europa.


The main goal of the Elpis Project (“Elpis”, meaning hope) is to contribute to the reduction of the consequences of the economic crisis in Greece among poor and socially excluded people.


The project addresses the situation of extreme poverty of people, both Greek citizens and migrants, who have no or little access to basic food or nutrition. The social counselling, which is combined with the food distribution, enables people to explore other ways to escape from their vulnerable situation in poverty by identifying their strengths.
