May 4, 2021 | CSR News

Navarino is privileged to have sponsored another worthwhile cause, the Piraeus social services or Public Benefit Municipal Enterprise of Piraeus, which is a part of KODEP. KODEP offers a range of social welfare services and programs for those citizens of Piraeus most in need. This is especially important during the current global health crisis.

The sponsorship is in the form of a van which will be used for the distribution of basic necessities to the homes of the most vulnerable groups of Piraeus, which KODEP have been carrying out since the beginning of the health crisis. KODEP have been operating for the last 10 years, after having been founded in 2011. The organization covers 5 key pillars: caring for the economically disadvantaged, providing food, providing clothing, providing information on health and prevention issues and implementing policies aimed at supporting vulnerable persons.

The handover ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Piraeus, Mr. Giannis Moralis, the President of KODEP, Mr. Giannis Voidonikolas, the co-founder and one of the shareholders of Navarino, Mr. Panos Tsikopoulos, and the Director of Social Services of KODEP, Mr Nikitas Kanakis.

The sponsorship hopes to strengthen the actions of KODEP, allowing for the effective distribution of necessary goods to those in need, as well as the effective facilitation of emotional and wellbeing support to, in particular, the elderly and lonely people who are in dire need of psychosocial assistance, especially during a time such as this. Navarino continues to look out for good causes to which we can offer our support and provide help to those in need, especially in our local area of Piraeus which is home to the
Navarino HQ.
