Who we are


Breath of Hope is a civic, non-profit organization active in charity work.

It was established in 2010 in the middle of the economic crisis, by a small group of people in an attempt to meet our fellow human beings` needs.

Since then the original team has been joined by many new friends, volunteers and sponsors.

Aims and objectives:

Breath of Hope aims to benefit the community and our objectives are philanthropic, humanistic, eco-friendly, cultural and educational.

  • Voluntary help
  • Social protection and solidarity
  • Employment
  • Co-operation and joint activities, wherever possible, with groups at home and abroad who have similar goals.

What we do:

When we hear of particular cases, after having first carefully checked and assessed their needs, we prepare and send dozens of parcels of basic necessities (clothing, food, school supplies, baby items, toys, household appliances) from our headquarter to destinations throughout Greece.

Every year we send more than 500 aid packages all over the country, the cost of transportation being covered by donations and the subscriptions of our members and volunteers.

Our programme- Vision:

We envisage:

  • The creation of a dynamic volunteer movement,
  • The spread of social  solidarity and voluenterism, through the results of our work and the moral satisfaction achieved from volunteering.
  • The co-operation with even more groups and organizations so as to offer greater and more effective help to those in need
  • Helping to better relieve the results of social problems caused by the economic crisis.

Our methods are based on the principles of love for our fellowmen, social solidarity, joint ventures and voluntary work, as well as the promotion of generosity and social cohesion and viable development.

Funding:

 As of now funding for our activities comes from:

  • The generosity of our volunteers
  • The donations of organizations and institutes
  • The sponsorship of private companies with a developed social conscience

 Why you should support Breath of Hope:

Because:

  • Our activities are voluntary and without self interest
  • It affects the society of which we are all members
  • By working together we can change the future
  • The small amount we each offer, adds up to a significant total
  •  We might sometimes, find ourselves in a similar situation as those who receive help from Breath of Hope today
  • The moral satisfaction of contributing is the chief reward for volunteering (other advantages included)
