Crete For Life Story
Since 2005, our main project is an annual restorative, fun filled holiday on Crete for disadvantaged children. We have welcomed children coping with poverty, war, violence and life threatening diseases from Greece, Belarus (those affected by the consequences of the Chernobyl’s catastrophe) Syria, Iraq and from other parts of the world.
Over recent years, in response to the Greek economic crisis and the unprecedented mass migration and refugee crisis, we have also moved into other areas of support:
• Helping refugees and migrants on the island of Crete and elsewhere in Greece, giving priority to unaccompanied minors and those most at risk.
• Supporting Crete’s University Hospital in Heraklion as well as other local hospitals that care for thousands of local and migrant children every year.
• Providing local children whose families & communities have suffered greatly from the economic downturn with practical help, medical assistance and emotional support .
