Statement by Mr. Stelios Zavvos, Chairman


On the occasion of the opening, Chairman Stelios Zavvos of Solidarity Now stated:

“At a time when the humanitarian crisis severely affects Greek society, SolidarityNow created Solidarity Centers focused on the protection of human rights for vulnerable Greeks and migrants. Our inspiration derives from the basic principle of solidarity between people. The non-profit organization SolidarityNow, launched by the Open Society Foundations two years ago, is continuously working in order to unite the voice of solidarity within Europe.  We promote solidarity from Europe towards our country and also solidarity from us towards our fellow-citizens. Solidarity towards the people who suffer from total lack of funds, lack of political and justice rights and are therefore excluded socially, economically, medically, and racially.”
