the Child <http://www.hamogelo.gr/1.2/home>charity in Greece. For the past
twenty years, the charity has provided accommodation for children in
danger, telephone support, and consultation on social integration. The
“Smile of the Child” has supported impoverished households that have
multiplied with the outbreak of the financial crisis in Greece and
organised cultural and athletic events to support its campaigns. In the
first half of 2014, the charity supported 57,056 children, approximately
90% more than in the first half of 2013.

Each year, the European Parliament awards "The European Citizen's Prize
for exceptional achievements in the areas of promoting better mutual
understanding and closer integration between citizens of the member- states
and facilitating cross-border or transnational cooperation within the
European Union.
