With medical equipment, professional doctors of all specialties, and a great appetite for help, bwin and “Médecins du Monde” visited the island of Ai Stratis, as part of the bwin corporate social responsibility program.
Cardiologists, pathologists, orthopedics and gynecologists have examined patients in the rural hospital of the island while a pediatrician and an otolaryngologist examined patients in the building of the town hall. At both places the team’s psychologist was also present, while the residents of the island were also briefed on the importance of prevention through vaccination.
Ms. Ioanna Beriou, Corporate Communications Manager at bwin said: “We are very pleased that through our bwin corporate social responsibility program, we have implemented our first action in remote societies of our country, such as the small community of Agios Efstratios. Ai Stratis is our first stop as our goal for 2019 is to travel with Doctors of the World to many more outermost islands and help people in need”.
For her part, Ms. Eugenia Thanou, General Director of “Médecins du Monde” commented: “Médecins du Monde try to meet the needs of Greek society by promoting medical care for people living in remote regions of Greece and who are having difficulty accessing health services. We are very pleased that with the support of bwin we were able to visit the island of Agios Efstratios and with the cooperation of the Medical Association of Limnos and the Mayor to successfully carry out a medical mission for the residents of the island”.
