Press Release
News on the Solidarity Caravan in Italy


On the 22nd of October, The Solidarity Caravan started from  Verona. (see http://mkie-foreign.blogspot.gr/2013/10/a-caravan-of-solidarity-for-mcch-in.html )

On Monday, 11 November, the Caravan arrived in Florence.  Our Italian friends, together with Greek students organized a number of events.  Here are the pictures.


Dinner at CPA-FiSud and collection of funds and medicines to support the Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko.


Banners and posters at Careggi Hospital in Florence.


Photography exhibit and pavilion at the Entrance to the Careggi Hospital to inform patients, doctors and visitors of the effects of austerity policies when applied to the health budget in Greece and Italy.


The Solidarity Caravan was received in Florence by an assembly of citizens.  Rosa Calderazzi (a representative of the organization Donne nella Crisi, which organized the caravan) and Ioanna Lymperopoulou (representative of MCCH) spoke to an open assembly.  Dr. George Vichas was able to make a presentation via Skype.  A discussion followed.



Ioanna Lymperopoulou, of MCCH describes the clinic and its contribution to the community.
