A different kind of Christmas tree was erected in Athens this year. Made up of various donated food products to be handed out to those in need.
Erected for the eight consecutive year “Doctors of the World”
..the Tree is adorned with tins of milk and packages of rice, beans, sugar, olive oil and other canned food products that citizens of the city donated.
The tree has a short life span. It adorns the yard of the historic building of the Athens University for just one day each year but serves major mission to ease hunger and poverty amongst the city’s less fortunate.
With the support of thousands of citizens who stopped by the university’s yard to donate food products and build the festive tree,
..Doctors of the World’s goal was that nobody would be left without a basic meal during the Christmas and New Year holidays.
