They outlined the current situation in the field for the support of the economically weaker parts  of the population , whose situation has deteriorated significantly in relation with the worsening of the country's economic crisis. They noted the shortcomings in the work of their organizations due to the aforesaid problem and they shared their experience in this field. It has been observed that in Greece the percentage of participation of the community in volunteerism is lower than in many European countries and this problem should be resolved by the active participation of all social organizations.
