'Today, approximately 650 families are in receipt of food and clothing. Psychological and other practical support measures are also provided to help families remain intact and regain the belief in their ability to care for the children they love. The authorities in Greece do not fund such services that are unquestionably for the public good. On the contrary, because of its 2010 tax reform, donations that help prevent the abandonment of children on the streets of Greece are now taxed, at the same rate as luxury goods. In 2011, SOS Children's Villages paid €160,000 in taxes on the total income. This equates to six per cent of funds received.'
