AFEA continues supporting the program “Health for All”

22/10/2019




AFEA, through “Health for All” program supports the health of vulnerable social groups. Nowadays, more than ever before, the need for equal access of the vulnerable population groups in health information exchange, health care, as well as support and rehabilitation through the health and social care system, is imperative. AFEA is aware of this need and through its Corporate Social Responsibility program, contributes actively to the financial support of the actions of the “Health for All” program in order to preserve the health of vulnerable social groups.

More specifically, AFEA supported the action of the volunteer group of the “Health for All” program, which visited and offered health services in areas of mountainous Thrace (Alexandroupoli, Municipality of Soufli – Evros and Orestiada, Rodopi, Municipality of Komotini etc.) between 19th and 23rd September 2019. The action had a great response and 264 children in total from minority and repatriated families received clinical examination, vaccinations and dental checkup. 

The program was carried out with the scientific responsibility of the doctors of the 1st Pediatric Clinic of "Aghia Sofia" General Children's Hospital, the Children’s clinic of the General Hospital of Komotini, and various health centers of the Municipalities. 
Mrs. Dimitra Lygnou, AFEA Deputy CEO, commented:
“It is of our constant care to support local communities in various regions of the country. We consider it our duty to contribute, in any way possible to us, to the well-being of the communities and by supporting the program “Health for All” we had the chance to actively support the improvement of children’s health in those regions”.

AFEA, in the context of its corporate responsibility and the values it stands for, will continue supporting relevant future actions, aiming to offer help to those in need.
