News on the Solidarity Caravan in Italy



Helliniko 22 November 2013

Press Release
News on the Solidarity Caravan in Italy


The Solidarity Caravan arrived at its final destination in Padua after a journey of 28 days and visiting 15 different cities in Italy.  For further information as to what cities the caravan visited, you can read our first press release here (link)

It was very moving to see our Italian friends organize this Caravan of Solidarity with our clinic and its patients.  In essence, the Solidarity Caravan was for all of the people in our countries who suffer under the crisis.

We had the opportunity on several occasions to speak, via Skype directly with MCCH from several of the events that had been organized and from different cities visited by the caravan.  Ioanna Lymperopoulou a volunteer from our communication team was able to attend three of them.  The keen interest from the Italians showed deep interest in the subject and the repeated questions on the status of public health in our country clearly showed deep anxiety about what is happening.

We want to thank Mrs. Sonia Metralia of the group “Women for Reproductive Rights” that brought us in contact with the group “Donee nella crisi” (Women of the Crisis) who had the idea of the caravan and assisted us with contacts to make it a reality.

Here is a short summary of the events of our volunteers participated in during their stay in Italy.

On Tuesday 12 November, the caravan arrived in Livorno.  After a reception outside the Spendali Rivinti Hosptial, spokeswoman for MCCH Ioanna Lymperopoulou and Rosa Calderazzi, a representative of Donne nella Crisi met with representatives of the International Cooperation in Hospital Health and discussed ways to strengthen solidarity towards the needy and uninsured patients of MCCH

In the afternoon there was an open meeting at Teatrofficina Refugio where Ioanna Lymperopoulou made a presentation on the clinic and the problems currently facing the public health system in Greece.  A discussion and dinner followed
