Let's fight hunger and poverty

November marks the start of the holiday season, a time when food and family are the foundations for celebration.

In these days, you know about the financial problems of Greece. It is said that the debts of our country seem to be higher than we thought at the beginning. But all people need happy days and awareness. Come on!

However, you know that 925 million people are undernourished. It means that 13.6% of the estimated world population of 6.8 billion inhabitants of our planet struggles with hunger. These are often children, seniors and hard-working adults who simply cannot make ends meet and do not always know where they will find their next meal.

So, we suggest: Take Action Today!
Look at Global Issues

French artist and photographer Alain Delorme’s recent series, Totems, illustrates the complexity and struggle of life in modern Shanghai. Large immigrant populations inhabit the city, often fulfilling heavy industrial jobs with very few resources.

What's about these populations in your country?
We are expecting your points of view...

Bread, Education, Freedom


37 years after the uprising in the Polytechnic school in Athens, the visions of those students of that age, nowadays, inspire us and give us strength to defend Democracy, National Independence, Freedom and Peace.
