Skopje Tafel – Everyone can help

About This Project

Project Summary

According to several studies, C.S.I. Nadez has determined the districts where the poorest population in Skopje lives, and covered those who live way below the poverty line. Skopje Tafel helps people in need to bridge hard times and get motivation, in order to overcome their problems. Once the food (supplies) is collected from the donors it will be distributed directly to the families’ homes, given to the homeless, to the children on the street, to community kitchens etc. The project entails four components:
