With the initiative of the “Foundation for the Child and the Family” and the “ELPIDA” Association of Friends of Children with Cancer, food, hygiene supplies, medicine, clothing, tents, blankets were collected and offered for the needs of the families, which were forced to abandon their houses and live in settlements at the Municipality of Fili due to the earthquake of the 7th of September 1999 in Attica. The President of two Foundations, Mrs Marianna V. Vardinoyannis, also decided to create a pre-constructed building which will be located in the regions affected by the earthquake to an extent of 200 square metres, which will accommodate a centre for children care and a nursery in Ano Liosia.
