Greece's financial crisis over the past several years has led to hardships for many of the people in this country. Lower incomes and pensions, coupled with rising costs, mean that families and the elderly struggle to pay for food and utilities. More often than not, they go without, leaving many children malnourished. With your gift of $55, IOCC can provide a family in need with a prepaid grocery card to buy fresh, locally produced food for one month.
*The examples in this catalog are for illustrative purposes. IOCC will use your gift, and that of others, to accomplish its overall mission of assisting families and communities to help themselves. Since 1992, IOCC has been transforming lives with innovative programs that prevent the spread of disease, equip farmers with tools and training, educate school children, build the Church's ability to help the poor, and deliver emergency supplies to those who have been caught in war and natural disaster.
