Father Antonios, Ark of the World Foundation leaders stamp

Father Antonios is an example of priesthood and humanism. In 1998 Pater Antonios, (who was only 26 years old then), along with a group of volunteers, created the non profitable organization “Ark of the World”. This action was a result of Father Antonio’s love for the children that have been experiencing abandonment, racism and social exclusion on a daily basis, in one of the most downgraded regions of Athens, the “Platonos” Academy. Realizing the poverty of these children, Father Antonios didn’t hesitate to dedicate his life to this purpose, offering love and dignity to these children and their mothers. Now the ‘’Ark of the World’’ takes care of 400 children, babies and children up to 18 years old, offering them a community of love at the centre of Athens.
