„ELPIDA“ for Iraklia

During my summer holidays in 2012 the hard effects of the austerity were clearly showing and inspired me to initiate some help. With my photography I found the perfect fund raising tool to give something back and thus support these wonderful people.

We decide together how to use the money best, and the people of Iraklia always contribute a considerable share by volunteered work or donations!!! All detailed information with pictures in our newsletters.

Since July 2012 we were able to raise € 18.220,00 together with our branch in England supporting the following:

2012: Paper, colors, games and other materials for creativity in school
2013: School roof repair (water damage)
Regularly since 2013: Basic medical supply for the whole island via griechenlandhilfe.at * Extra payments to the care fund for an elderly lady
2014: Interactive whiteboard and projector for the school and chairs for visitors *** A new souvenir shop in Aghios Giórgos offers my stationery with the best local underwater motifs
2015: Fax and cartridges for the doctor’s office * School: Educational trip to Athens * Solar lamps for the ancient castl
2016: Facelift for Tourkopígado beach * Shelves for the new school * Food parcels for families
2017: Ecological bags instead of plastic, food parcels and sanitary material, medical equipment, renovation of street walls, support for an electricity bill

Beauties of Iraklia

It´s 25 years now that I´ve spent my summer holidays on the tiny little Greek Island of Iraklia in the middle of the Aegean Sea  (www.iraklia.gr). About 140 people live there on roughly 18 square kilometers. Holidays close to nature and the heartwarming Greek hospitality have made this small paradise into a precious and powerful spot for me to recharge my energies and lift up my spirits.

Through the years my enthusiasm for the sea increased, and my passion for wild life photography took new flights in Poseidon´s kingdom. You get a very personal and “female” look at a tiny little spot of underwater Greece – aesthetic, emotional, sensual. Since I have become a passionate snorkeller  and free diver there, my very specialty is that all my pictures were taken without scuba diving equipment in the uppermost ten meters below sea level.

I offer full length picture shows about Iraklia's Beauties - on land and especially in the sea, as well as about the project Elpida.
