Charities are an integral part of the social contribution of all the subsidiaries of the Eurobank group.
To this end, every year the Group is supporting the work of a large number of non-profit organizations and foundations, active on issues related to children and health.
In 2011, the Group’s actions were supplemented by the support of various units and subsidiaries to programs and organizations selected by the employees themselves, in the context of corporate volunteering. Some examples are the support offered to the City of Athens Centre forthe Homeless, the Perissos Children’s Shelter and the “Aghios Polycarpos Smyrnis” Child Protection Society, the donation of clothing and various items to the “Hamogelo tou Paidiou” (The Smile of a Child) and the «Patriotic Institute for Social Welfare and Awareness» of Pendeli, the donation of medicines to the “Medecins Du Monde” and the provision of food to the “Klimaka” shelter.
Moreover, it was the official sponsor of the resuscitation and first-aid courses that were organized in collaboration with the Rescue Society Bucharest and the Bucharest-Ilfov Ambulance Service and were attended by 7,402 people.
