Solidarity

Dear friends,

During this difficult holiday period, the Hellenic Community of Ireland invites you to show and demonstrate your support to some families in Ireland in two possible ways:

(1) By purchasing gift vouchers from TESCO or One 4 All or similar and forwarding them to the address: Hellenic Community of Ireland, 19 Belvedere Place, Dublin 1.

(2) By lodging to the Hellenic Community Bank Account, through Donate, amounts with which we will purchase gifts from 12/12/2020 until 29/12/2020. Please use the DONATE button in our web page https://member.helleniccommunity.ie/product-category/donate/ so that we have the possibility to enter and present the donations in our financial statement.

The Hellenic Community of Ireland, continuing its efforts to help and support the Greeks living in Ireland, has created a national network of volunteers through the helpline that began in March 2020 during the virus pandemic.

We are grateful for and want to thank all our volunteers and we request that you help and support us in our effort so that nobody is left helpless in any period of their existence. Please confirm your wish to volunteer in helpline@helleniccommunity.ie.

In the local level we are co-operating with the Wheel network of volunteers (https://www.wheel.ie/), as well as with the HSE community call (https://www.hse.ie/…/intercultu…/the-community-call.html ) in each local community.

The Hellenic Community of Ireland has also co-operated since March 2020 with the organisation Robert Emmet CDP and helped families that found themselves in difficult situations through the charity Foodcloud (https://food.cloud/) .

We have also contacted the Mendicity organisation (http://www.mendicity.org/), to which some of our members have volunteered, and we have reached an agreement with it that free food will be offered to families that will require this type of support

Full discretion will be kept in order to protect the dignity and self respect of the receivers.
