January 2016 is the 6th year of the operation of a Beth Myriam in Greece. Readers of the Messages who are members of the TLIG prayer groups, with the help of the Blessed Mother, have established a different kind of Beth Myriam activity here in Athens.
At the beginning, we got information from a public institution for six families (10 children and 6 adults) that had many urgent needs, were living in different districts of Athens and from January 2009, we initiated our own small Beth Myriam activity. Thus, at the end of each month, TLIG volunteers buy food provisions for each family from a major supermarket and, using their own means of transport, deliver them door to door. As well as food stuff, they include clothing, cooking utensils, blankets and whatever else is needed for the functioning of a normal household.
Buying food for each family
With the help of Our Lord, we are currently supporting about 30 families, of which most are children.

We thank Christ and the Blessed Mother for this harvest of self-offering and love and we hope in the near future, with God’s grace, to significantly increase the number of people cared for by the Athens Beth Myriam.
