  • [01] Social Solidarity Network unveiled

    AMNA/ Some 30,000 enterprises from Macedonia, Thrace and Epirus have joined forces for the creation of a Social Solidarity and Assistance Network, which was unveiled on Saturday in Thessaloniki at an event that was attended by President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias.

    The Network, created by the Federation of Industries of Northern Greece in collaboration with the local Chambers, Exporters Association and Commerce Association, has already signed memorandums of cooperation with 20 charity and other organizations while another 20 are due to be signed.

    Papoulias, who traveled to Thessaloniki especially for the event, welcomed the 'praiseworthy effort', which he said is the first of its kind and Greece, and expressed hope that it would be copied by others.

    Federation of Industries of Northern Greece president Nikos Pentzos called the Network a "humanitarian institution", noting that in 2010 his Federation had taken up an initiative to support the vulnerable population groups, having anticipated the hard times that were coming, while the joint agreement for the creation of the Network itself was signed last February.

    "We want to give back to society what it has been giving to us all these years," Pentzos said, adding that the Network provided assistance this past Christmas to more than 5,000 people.

    He added that the companies taking part in the network, despite the hardships they are facing themselves, want to show their 'social face' and develop social offer and solidarity, through the provision of food, money and other goods to individuals, groups, charity foundations, organizations and agencies.
