Help-Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe
We are the NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION Help-Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe, an international organization that has been engaged for many years in the relief of refugees and people in need.
Our headquarters are located in Germany and our sources of funding are mainly the German Government and the European Union, the UN, many charities, churches, businesses and individuals.
In Greece, Help has so far been active through the Antigone and 'The Smile of the Child' organizations.
Since the beginning of 2017, Help Hellas has its own offices in Athens.
One of our first projects is the operation of the hostel for refugee housing called Mosaic. The Mosaic offers housing to 35 people, 14 vulnerable women from different countries with their 18 children. Children attend school and kindergarten. Younger children stay at the shelter where they participate in activities and lessons.
In Mosaic, there are around 20 volunteers from different countries offering foreign language courses, yoga and many activities for both children and adults.
This project is funded by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the auspices of the German Embassy in Athens.
