Health Minister Andreas Loverdos paid a visit to the Child Care Serve 'Anarrotirio Pentelis' on Christmas Day, where he handed out presents to the children and sang Christmas carols with them.

The children presented the minister with a drawing that they had prepared together and he also received a special gift from a seven-year-old supporter of the Olympiacos Piraeus football club, the team also supported by the minister, who gave him with an Olympiacos mug and received a bag items from the Olympiacos FC gift shop in return.

The Anarrotirio Pentelis is one of the main and most important child care agencies in Greece for neglected or abused children without care-givers, making arrangements for them to be adopted or placed in foster families.

It currently provides a home for 34 children, ranging in age from newborns to eight years old, and also monitors a foster-home programme for another 154 children.
