The Holy Metropolis has always stood next to the community, through the General Fund for Poverty in times of need.
The General Fund for Poverty was founded, with a deed made public in the 281/16-9-1946 edition of the Greek Government Bulletin, thanks to the care and personal contribution of the Late Metropolis of Messenia Chrysostomos (Daskalakis). With Resolution 38/08 of the Most Reverend Metropolitan of Messenia Chrysostomos (Savvatos), it was modified and reinstated as a new service of the Holy Metropolis of Messenia, under the title "GENERAL FUND FOR POVERTY", operating under a special Regulation, approved by the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece and published in the 2070/7-10-08 edition of the Greek Government Bulletin.
Under the General Fund for Poverty operate 37 County Poverty Funds, from the Counties of Kalamata, Messini and other Municipal Centres and main cities.
