The head of the Gender Equality Network of KINAL (Movement for Change), Anna Karamanou, visited this morning the Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and all Greece, along with Maria Theochari, member of the Network.
Karamanou discussed with the Archbishop various issues of social interest, while she was concerned about the increase in domestic violence, even among young people, the lack of respect for human rights and the reduction of human rights funding. She also asked for support and help from the Church.
Karamanou, while speaking at the Church of Greece Radio 89,5, praised the work of the Archdiocese on family matters. The Family Support Centre (KESO) of the Archdiocese of Athens has treated nearly one hundred women, victims of domestic violence, from 2012 to today, and has secured shelter for several of them, while most women have attended KESO’s skill courses, which offer professional, and thus financial independence.
