which worked diligently to coordinate
the assembly of the medical supplies,

announced Supreme President Phillip
T. Frangos.
This is the eighth shipment of medical supplies AHEPA helped to deliver
to Greece working in cooperation with
IOCC. The medical supplies range from
syringes and walkers to catheters and
nebulizers-all materials needed to run
and administer a hospital on a daily
basis. All told, nearly $5.5 million in
medical supplies have been donated
and delivered to hospitals throughout Greece through this collaborative
effort, Frangos said. The supreme president complimented the efforts on the
ground of AHEPA Hellas District 25
and AHEPA Chapter HJ6, Crete-Kydon.
"Austerity measures have had a devastating impact on public health spending," Supreme President Frangos said.
"The ability of hospitals to purchase
medical supplies and equipment has
been hampered. The need continues to
be very real, and AHEPA, working in
cooperation with the IOCC, is proud to

be able to facilitate the shipment of a
significant amount of aid to help address
the medical supply shortage in Greece."
He added, "We thank the community for helping to make this important shipment of medical supplies a
reality through its contributions and
donations. The spirit of philanthropy
is alive and well and it must continue
to flourish if we are to meet the dire
needs the people of Greece are enduring during this most difficult time. We
are proud of the community's action,
and we encourage individuals and
organizations to continue to donate to
worthy causes that help Greece."

The shipment of medical supplies is
unloaded.
