Actions for homeless
synAthina“I had information about the actions of each group either through the site of Synathina or through the Reception Center for Homeless of Municipality of Athens. Two or three times in the past I had meal in one of these actions. The importance of these actions is great, such as the Steps group, which, besides, have a van with washing machines. To have access to a washing machine is not something taken for granted. Many homeless do not have this opportunity”. Lambros Moustakis, seller of the street paper and guide in the “Invisible Routes”.
