Collaborations


Acupuncturists without Borders

CHEERing is collaborating with Acupuncturists without Borders-Greece. Acupuncturists without Borders-Greece is an NGO which operates The ALMA Center, where they provide free acupuncture and reflexology services for refugees and asylum seekers. Acupuncture and reflexology techniques can provide relief from migraines and headaches, abdominal pain, post-traumatic stress, insomnia, and any muscle pain. CHEERing donates free space in our Pipinou apartments where Acupuncturists without Borders see beneficiaries.


Solidarity Now

CHEERing has worked with Solidarity Now since 2019, providing breastfeeding training for all their mother-baby space coordinators across Greece. We’ve worked with them at Oinfyta, Eleonas, Thermopylae, and now at Malakasa.

At Malakasa camp, Solidarity Now provides an indoor space for CHEERing to host Grow Clinics and meet with mothers and their babies. They also help by connecting us with new mothers in the camp.


GIVMED

GiveMed is an Athens based non-profit organization that facilitates free access to medications for community based organizations and non profits. CHEERing and GiveMed have had a longstanding partnership and we recently renewed our MOU. CHEERing also donates our extra medications to GivMed if we receive donation surpluses. GiveMed has supplied CHEERing with a number of medications including iron, folic acid, and prenatal vitamins which we use to support families at our Grow Clinics. They have also supplied us with protein bars which have been great for our growing CHEERing Football Club!

Seeds of Humanity

Seeds of Humanity Hellas is a branch of a Palestinian NGO that provides comprehensive support to vulnerable refugee families by offering solutions to their basic needs. In May 2022, Seeds of Humanity Hellas signed an MOU with CHEERing to further collaboration between the two non-profit organizations.

In the spring of ’22, Seeds of Humanity treated over 50 referrals from CHEERing, mostly children below 13 years of age, from the CHEERing Football Club and their parents for serious dental problems. The treatment included fillings, extraction, and even root canals. All services provided were free of cost by volunteer dentists.
