The Hungry and Homeless Seek Refuge on Mount Athos

More and more people are seeking refuge in the monasteries of Mount Athos because of the crisis in Greece. This was revealed in a recent interview by Αχελώο TV with Monk Nikodemos from the Monastery of Saint Paul.

"Countless are the people who roam from one monastery to another on Mount Athos to secure food and shelter to survive... People feel the need for survival, hunger is torture and it is a daily phenomenon in our days... We do everything we can to alleviate their suffering."
