Love and solidarity from our Italian friends

 

Press Release
 Love and solidarity from our Italian friends

During October and November 2013, the Italian feminist organization "Donne nella Crisi" ("Women in the Crisis"), along with other Italian organizations and groups of civilians,  held a Solidarity Caravan in Italy, aiming to inform the Italian people about the critical situation of Greece's Public Health. The Caravan traveled throughout Italy, crossing a total of 15 cities, organized multiple events, such as discussions, photography exhibitions, video projections, thus making widely known the activities of the Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko and also the humanitarian crisis that is unfolding. A presentation of the Clinic was also made by our representative, brochures and informational material were given to civilians outside of hospitals and at various city squares, in order to raise awareness concerning the impact of the crisis in the average civilian' s health in our country. (You can read all about the itinerary of the caravan here)

During the events, a large number of urgently needed medications were collected and a significant amount of money  was donated so as to proceed to the purchase of new medications for our clinic.

We were also very pleased to welcome the representative of the organization "Donne nella Crisi", Ms Rosa Calderazzi on the 3rd of April at our premises, where the official delivery of medicines, bought with the money donations during the Caravan, was made. At this point, it is worth mentionning that Ms Calderazzi, with the help of a volunteer, has been crossing Italy for over a month with a trailer, informing Italian civilians about everything that is currently happenning in the Greek National Health system. It is needless to say that any kind of aid coming from a country which faces similar social problems, such as high unemployment rates and serious effects on its National Health System, is of extreme importance and means a lot to us.

The least we can say is a very big "thank you" to our brothers in Italy, sending at the same time the message that we stand by them in their own forthcoming struggle to claim the right of all civilians for a free and unrestricted access to their country's National Health System.

We would also like to thank Ms Sonia Mitralia, from the group "Women for Reproductive Rights", who brought us into contact with the organization "Donne nella Crisi", and with whose presence and contribution the solidarity caravan has had such a positive outcome.

Below there are some pictures from the cities  visited by the Caravan and the events that were held.
