Abortion is taking place at an alarming rate in Greece. In fact, Greece has one of the highest abortion rates in all of Europe! Unfortunately, abortion is used as a common form of birth control and little is being done to address the devastating consequences of this act including the deep guilt, depression and shame that many men and women experience following an abortion. There is a need in all of us to find freedom from the past and hope for the future.
Hellenic Ministries’ Response
The Hope Center Ministry exists to promote the sanctity of human life in Greece, through education, housing, and counseling.
We minister to students by communicating that life begins at conception, that abortion is not a form of contraception, and that there is hope in every situation.
We provide a Christian maternity home for pregnant women in crisis situations, who choose not to have an abortion and who need help. The Hope Center houses women and walks with them through their pregnancy by offering love, godly counsel and friendship in a family setting.
We also seek to help both men and women find freedom and healing through post abortion recovery education classes.
We ask that you become a prayer warrior for this ministry and also provide opportunities for us to spread the word in churches, schools etc. Our current staff needs are for a marketing specialist, IT technician, graphic designer, videographer, database manager, trained social worker, house parents, house assistant, grant writer, publicist, administrative workers, mentors, and families to house a new mom and her baby for the second phase of help/aftercare when they leave the Hope Center. Additionally, we are praying for workers who feel led to minister to the Roma people that live in the neighborhood surrounding The Hope Center.
