The following parallel actions were carried out by Mission ANTHROPOS

March 2017 - November 2017 "Knowledge is Power": in collaboration with Melissa Network for migrant women, specialist doctors (pediatrician and gynecologist) delivered a series of informative lectures on personal hygiene, childcare and other gynecological issues to migrant/refugee women. Women from Iran, Afghanistan, Africa and Syria, listened with great interest and raised many questions in the subsequent discussion.

April 2016 - June 2016 Five missions for people in need were organized at the Prefectures of Xanthi, Dodekanissa & Atticato cover basic necessities such as clothing and footwear. We would like to thank Captain Vasilis & Carmen Constantakopoulos Foundation, A.M.Nomikos Transworld Maritime Agencies S.A., FOURLIS Group and Intersport as well as the Medical School of Athens for their kind donations.

April 2016 A preventive medicine action for adults was organized in addition to the planned vaccination action at the Prefecture of Xanthi. Together with volunteer doctors Helena G., physiologist, Nikos P. cardiologist and Varvara S., ENT, we visited the region of Drosero, Xanthi as well as the Municipality of Topeiros where we examined and offered medical advice to 83 habitants. We are very happy every time we have the opportunity -with the valuable help of our volunteers- to support a community in a holistic way!!!

December 2015 - March 2016 7 actions took place in the Prefectures of Chios, Xanthi, Lesvos, Drama & Attiki where we offered medical supplies, essentials, clothing and footwear for children and adults. These actions would not have been possible without the substantial contribution of the FOURLIS Group and Intersport, the DELATOLAS transport company, the Medical School of Athens and other companies and individuals. Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude to our great team of volunteers!
