93-year-old Greek-Australian donated a mammogram and an ambulance to the Kefalonia hospital

Roubina Liosatou Australia

Donations worth tens of thousands of euros were made by an elderly Greek woman from Australia, gifting a state-of-the-art mammogram and an ambulance to the General Hospital of Kefalonia, while previously she had made similar donations to the General Hospital of Pyrgos, where her husband was from.

Roubina Liosatou, who turned 93 years old on Sunday, left for Australia, where she lives, 65 years ago. But she never forgot her special hometown of Argostoli, to which she donated a digital mammogram and an ambulance.

"I always liked to offer, and I worked at the Argostoli hospital as a volunteer," she told ERT about her acts of love for her homeland.

The commander of the Argostoli hospital expressed his gratitude to the Greek-Australian.

“She gave a piece of herself so that we could get this mammogram, which is important for the health of all women. She also donated an ambulance to the hospital, which can be used to discharge patients, so that it is not used, and the EMS is not busy with discharges," said the commander, Dimitris Martinis.

But this is not the only donation she has made since, in 2023, she decided to help the hospital of Pyrgos, the place where her husband was born.

"To the hospital of Pyrgos, she donated beds for short hospitalisation, which are electrically powered to treat better the patients who come to the Emergency Department, and a modern x-ray machine for the radiology department," emphasised the commander of the 6th Health Department, Yiannis Karvelis.

"The face of the hospital changed. I did this in memory of my husband. We love the country, we love it very much. I liked doing something for my country," explained Liosatou.
