One of the largest passenger shipping company in Greece, ANEK Lines, has donated tablet devices to students in Chania, Crete.
It is recalled pre-school facilities, primary schools, and high schools are currently closed. Greece is in its second covid-19 lockdown.
With the pandemic, students and teachers were forced to learn a new way of learning- tele-education or distance learning.
“For all of us at ANEK Lines, children are the future of our country, the hope and the reason why we continue to fight every day,” Vice President of ANEK Lines, Spyros Protopapadakis said in an announcement.
“In these special circumstances, with the pandemic spreading and the distances widening, we shouldn’t let our children deviate from knowledge and learning, as these are the foundations that will help them build a better world,” he added.
“With sensitivity and care, right before a different Christmas period, the company sends a message of hope and optimism for tomorrow,” the announcement concluded.
It was founded in 1967 by numerous shareholders who were inhabitants of Crete. It operates passenger ferries, mainly on Piraeus-Crete and Adriatic Sea lines.
