About the Association Fylakas Angelos (Guardian Angel)

The purpose of the association is to provide social and humanitarian support to vulnerable groups and especially to abused and neglected children. Through its work, the Fylakas Angelos association also aims at creating appropriate reception areas for abused children in large urban centres and in local courthouses. These spaces will be designed specially, to allow children to be accommodated for up to 3-4 days until appropriate assessments can be made by experts. Specialists, scientists and institutions will work together so that a better and more accurate evaluation of the problem can be carried out within an appropriate space.
