Hello friends of Antiparos,
We are once again raising funds for essential medical supplies for the Antiparos Medical Center.
The Antiparos Medical Centre http://www.antiparos.gr/en/episkeptes-2/useful-information/health.html is a vital service providing general and emergency health support for locals and tourists. Whether you have injured yourself in an accident or need support for an ongoing medical condition the experienced doctors and support staff provide their expert diagnosis and treatment to thousands of tourists each year. This funding , two years now, made it easier for all of us to have an above-average, up-to-date clinic and make our stay safer on beautiful Antiparos.
The money raised in 2017 and 2018 (4659 + 3450 euros respectively) helped purchase the following vital medical supplies needed to keep treating us.
-surgical equipment (gloves, gauzes, blades, forceps, scissors, needle holders, sutures, strips, tapes and tissue glue, suction system and tubes)
-examination and diagostic equipment (nebulizer, pulse oximeter, stethoscopes, thermometers, manometers, strep A, urine test, cholesterol and sugar strips).
-orthopaedic equipment (slings, casts and narthexes, kinesiotapes and bandages). -Examiner's chair, saline stand, storage closets and furniture (specially adapted emergency storage for the ED room), lights, outdoor waiting benches and new sign label.
-Consumable spares for the ECG, spirometer , printers and other paraphernalia.
We are very thankful for your donations and in conjunction with the Medical Centre, we have decided it is necessary to repeat our efforts this year. Proceeds will again go directly to the Medical Centre to enable it to keep us in good health! This year the event supporting the fund is not athletic, as before. Dr Sotiris with Yannis Samouelian and Yervant Manoukian will give a concert on 30.08 at 20.30 in the historic Antiparos Kastro, for the sake of this project. This is a unique opportunity to hear wonderful musicians who have given freely their time to support the fundraiser. Come along and listen if you are here and have a fabulous night while helping a good cause! For those not able to be here, we hope to record for later broadcast.
Thank you all for your support and generosity,
Iliada, Monica and Dr. Sotiris
