:: ELPIDA YOUTH ::
The “ELPIDA” story began in 1990. The love of its members for children and the realisation that our country lacked the means to treat children who needed bone marrow transplants were the two basic factors for the creation of the Association. Its work – a labor of love, humanity and social mobilisation – has continued all these years with hard work and selfless contribution.
ELPIDA Youth was founded in the summer of 2015 by a group of young members of ELPIDA aspiring to further build on its strong vision with new ideas and activities but always with the same love for the sick child and its family.

:: ELIZA ::
ELIZA is one of the very few specialised charitable organisations in Greece whose exclusive purpose is to protect and promote the rights of children, who have have suffered or run the risk of suffering neglect or abuse, and the only organisation focusing on preschool-age children.
The life and tragic death of Elisa Izquierdo (1989 – 1995) was the catalyst for the passing of Elisa's Law in the U.S, and which redefined the responsibilities of the state and social services on matters of child abuse by increasing the accountability of all those involved in child protection, and by limiting confidentiality in relation to the disclosure of such cases.
