A significant number of charities from all over the country are threatened with closure, since they are unable to cope with the high taxation and underfunding. Many of these charities offer critical medical care to hundreds of patients, as well as offering training and accommodation.
A report in the Monday edition of Ta Nea details that the dozens of employees often remain unpaid for months, with the charity board members regularly being summoned to court over their insurance contribution and tax debts.
Should the cash-strapped charities be forced to shut down, the future of many remains uncertain, as the government does not have the necessary structures to support them.
At present the Hospice is accommodating 210 patients with serious neurological problems, the Kalithea Nursing Home has 29 children, the Hatzipaterio has 100 children suffering from cerebral palsy, while 370 children and young people (aged 2.5 to 35) are receiving training at the Theotokos Institute.
