President Sakellaropoulou Stresses Need for Solidarity with the Homeless

ATHENS – President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Wednesday visited the Athens Municipality's new Centre for the Homeless, stressing the need for solidarity with those who are most vulnerable and need our care.

Accompanied by the Mayor of Athens, Kostas Bakogiannis, the President of the Republic met with homeless people and employees at the municipality's Reception and Solidarity Center, stating: "I am here today to emphasise through my presence just how important the creation of this centre by the Municipality of Athens is for those people that do not have a home to stay in."

She also pointed out that "the pandemic crisis has made the need to care for the most vulnerable among us even more urgent. They are people who live in extreme poverty, many have health problems, many are elderly."

Closing her statement, she noted that "we have to shield them against the disease, to surround them with our care, to show our solidarity in action. That is why I welcome the municipality's initiative, with the hope that facilities of this kind will multiply."
