Father Angelos of Estia Foundation in talks to open up Drug Rehabilitation Centre under the Holy Archdiocese


After visiting the Estia Foundation last week and praising the work and efforts of everyone involved, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios gave the foundation his blessing for a successful implementation of their future plans.

Following his high appraisal, His Eminence then went on to share his concerns about the serious problem of drug use that is ongoing in the general community. He revealed his thought of establishing a Drug Rehabilitation Centre under the Holy Archdiocese, to be located in Sydney.

His Eminence commissioned the creation of this particular planned structure for Father Angelos, believing him to be the most suitable person to undertake this ambitious undertaking.

The Estia Foundation is a non-profit organisation established under the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia that aims to ‘Promote the needs, rights, interests and welfare of people with disabilities and their families or care givers and provide opportunities for individual development and independence.’ Father Angelo Alifierakis, CEO of the organisation, is responsible for all of Estia’s operations and services.
