The President of the Greek Community of Melbourne, Mr. Bill Papastergiadis and the President of the Hellenic Medical Society of Australia were delighted to host members from Pronia and Fronditha Care at the Greek Centre in Melbourne. In a wonderful event hosted by the Greek Community of Melbourne and the Hellenic Medical Society of Australia, a Gala fundraising ball was organised in order to support these two important Hellenic organisations.

Fronditha Care is an award-winning provider in the aged care community and residential care for older Australians with a Greek cultural background and Pronia provides a comprehensive series of ethnospecific support services enabling every member of our community to live their lives in the way they would like.

Marinis Pirpiris praised both organisations for their dedication to innovations and continuous improvement in their services. He highlighted that Pronia and Fronditha Care play a crucial role in an inclusive sector that values community traditions, cultural practices and personal beliefs.

Ms Elpis Korosidis, President of the Board of Pronia and Ms Tina Douvos Stathopoulos CEO of Pronia accepted the donation on behalf of Pronia. Mr Kosta Livadaras treasurer of Fronditha Care and Faye Spiteri CEO of Fronditha Care accepted donations from the Greek Community of Melbourne and the Hellenic Medical Society of Australia.

The Greek Community of Melbourne expressed gratitude for the vital services provided by these organisations, which address the need for culturally aligned services. In a warm and friendly conversation regarding the importance of these organisations in our culturally and linguistically diverse community, the passion and commitment of all present in providing innovative solutions to the many obstacles facing people at different times of their lives was clear.

Bill Papastergiadis, noted the value of collaborative events like this one, which promote a shared understanding of issues, needs and potential solutions within the community. Collaborations like this enhance the ability to support and uplift the community as a whole.

The Greek Community of Melbourne are dedicated to continuously supporting Hellenic Welfare Organisations with plans to fundraise for Agapi Care in the early new year.
