Press Release - Initiative for specialized medical equipment and drugs in public hospitals




 Helliniko 8 August 2012



The Metropolitan Community Clinic Of Helliniko, in line with its goal of supporting providers of public health,  gave medical equipment and medicines to two public hospitals, Hospital "Asklepieion" in Voula and the Cancer Hospital "Metaxa" in Piraeus.  On Thursday, July 26, 2012, the social workers of "Metaxa" received drugs including cancer and painkillers, and medical equipment (colostomy bags, under-pads, mattresses to protect against bed sores, etc.) to cater for needy patients. 

On Saturday 04 August 2012 MKIE delivered to "Asklepieion" hospital equipment and supplies (including colostomy bags, under-pads and urinary catheters, filters and piping for ventilators, tracheotomy packages for both closed and open suction, syringes, etc.) for the needs of the hospital.  These supplies have been donated to MKIE by individual and companies as well as various community initiatives to collect medicines.  The material is sorted at MKIE by volunteers and then assigned to the place that it can do the most good. 

We, the volunteers of MKIE will continue with all our might in the effort to support Public Health and our struggling fellow Citizens.  We insist: "No one is alone in this crisis."
