Committed to children in need, working from Crete

Crete For Life is a child focused charity that works on practical projects to make an immediate – but hopefully lasting - impact on children’s lives. What we do Since 2005, our main project is an annual restorative, fun filled holiday on Crete for sick children, who might otherwise never have a holiday. We have welcomed children coping with life threatening diseases from Greece, Belarus (those affected by the consequences of the Chernobyl’s catastrophe) Syria, Iraq and from other parts of the world.

Over recent years, in response to the Greek economical crisis and the unprecedented mass migration and refugee crisis, we have moved into other areas of support:

• Helping refugees and migrants on the island of Crete and elsewhere in Greece, giving priority to unaccompanied minors and those most at risk.

• Supporting Crete’s university hospital who serves thousands of children every year. • Providing local children whose families & communities have suffered greatly from the economic downturn with practical help, medical assistance and emotional support.

Why we do it?
