Homeless in Hania

Postby marmite » Thu Nov 30, 2017 10:02 pm

Does anyone know if there is any provision in Hania for the homeless? The latest report I can find dates to 2015 when there was only provision in Heraklion.

The Steki on Daliani street (the Minaret street near Splanzia) has a soup kitchen and collect clothes etc.

Down in the harbour, behind the old Pallas cafe (near Monastiri taverna), there is the large old building which is owned by the Polytechnio and run by students (a long term 'squat' !) and they house a few homeless there, as well as putting on small social events and running a cafe etc in the building. https://rosanera.squat.gr

I think both above have Facebook pages too.

Last December the Chania Dimos set up a small temporary shelter in Koun Kapi - see here (not sure if this is still running and if not, whether they will open it up again this winter) http://www.zarpanews.gr/%CF%87%CE%B1%CE ... B9-%CE%AC/

I think there is an (possibly more than one) organisation that takes food out to the villages for people who are struggling but I don't have any details. Also there were a few cafés in Crete that ran a "suspended coffee" scheme where you could pay for a coffee for someone else but the article is from January 2016 so I don't know if they are still active.

The "Social Supermarket" (based in Vrises Town Hall) does this in Apokoronas district.

"Anamoni" is alive and well in some towns, including the butcher's shop in Georgioupoli, where I leave a tenner occasionally. (It sometimes covers whatever the shop sells - not only coffee.)

I think that the word "Anamoni" means "waiting" (or something similar).
