Greece’s Alpha Bank announced on Friday that it will continue supporting the National Health System with ‘additional donations of medical equipment and pharmaceutical supplies to the local medical centres of eight Greek islands’, as part of its Social Responsibility programme "Together, for better Health".
According to the announcement, the first island to benefit from its programme was the island of Koufonissia, where on Thursday, June 25, 2020, medical equipment and pharmaceutical supplies were delivered to the local Regional Medical Centre.
By the end of July, Alpha Bank has planned to donate similar equipment to Oinousses, Spetses, Rethymno and Chania in Crete, as well as Gavdos, Sikinos, Skopelos and Agathonissi.
The “Together, with better Health” programme by Alpha Bank was initiated in 2014, in collaboration with the “Agoni Grammi Gonimi” organisation, to improve the quality of health services and to reinforce the sense of safety for the residents of Greek islands.
Since the beginning of the "Together, for better Health" programme approximately 234,000 units of medical equipment, devices and pharmaceutical supplies have been delivered to 52 islands, supporting the needs of more than 550,000 residents.
