The Renovation of our Facilities Continues!
The Union “Awareness”, in order to contribute to the cause of the Christodoulio Foundation, published, this year also, wall calendars.
By buying your calendars from “Awareness”, you help the Christodoulio Foundation.
The buildings that house the kitchen and dining room of the Christodoulio Foundation are dated back to 1945.
Because of that, a group of friends of the Christodoulio Foundation, who came to love the work being done at the Foundation, gave a grant for the renovation of the kitchen and dining room buildings and the renewal of their equipment.
By doing so, they are offering better living conditions to our 34 girls.
We thank them warmly!
This year too, the efforts of our children and the people who stand by them were rewarded, as one of our senior girls, Miss Artemis M. managed to enter the Technical Institution of Athens School for Nurses, after succeeding in her admission exams.
We congratulate her warmly and wish her the best!
We also thank warmly the tutoring School “Mathisi” (Ag. Vassiliou 140) for standing by us in all such efforts for many years.

Princess Aikaterini of Serbia in Chaidari, for the children of the Christodoulio Orphanage
Princess Aikaterini of Serbia
On the 7th of May, the Tuesday after Easter, the doors of Christodoulio Orphanage opened wide to welcome an outstanding woman, a Greek Princess especially popular for her great humanitarian work, Princess Aikaterini of Serbia.
The children of the foundation and all of us present at the facilities of Christodoulio to welcome her, were astounded by her simplicity. She came alone, accompanied only by her sister, Mrs. Betty, capturing everyone, children and adults alike, with her smile, her warm embrace and the nice words she had for each and every one of us.
She was welcomed by the children and the members of the board of directors, The President Mrs. Akrivi Kaklamani - Alepi, The Cashier Mr. Georgios Christoforakis, The Secretary General Mr. Sofoklis Alepis and the Manager Mrs. Vassiliki Manoussi.
The Princess gathered all the children around her and told them that she is Greek, that che was born and grew up in Athens and in Laussane, studied Business Management in Colorado and the University of Dalas, Texas and in 1985 met and maried Prince Alexander of Serbia. She gave to the children beutiful gifts, according to their ages. She also gave them optimistic messages about their future saying “why not, one of you may also one day become a Princess”.
Before leaving, Princess Aikaterini did not hide for one minute her love for Greece and now that her country needs help and support, she is taking action in charity work to help her countrymen.
She has her own way to overcome any obstacles in order to offer freely her help with the love that defines her. The embrace she opens for you, the smiles she gives you, give you courageto take the next steps in the difficult road of children protection.
The Christodoulio Foundation feels greatly honored that the Princess, with her so heavy schedule took the time to visit us and chose to offer her precious time to us. It is only just that we felt she was the princess of our heart.
