„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 € 32.938,00 together with a generous and dedicated „fan group“ from all over Europe, thus supporting or enabling the following:

  • Schools: Paper, colours and other materials for creativity, games * Roof repair (water damage) * Interactive Whiteboard & Beamer * chairs * shelves * Exkursions to Athen & Mykonos * Supplies for the chemistry lab
  • Health care: Fax and cartridges for the doctor´s office * Medication and equipment * Payments to the care fund of an elderly lady * Since 2013 the Austrian organization www.griechenlandhilfe.at has been providing all kinds of medical supplies for the whole island in irregular intervals    
  • Families: Food parcels * Sanitary materials * Financial support for special needs  
  • Infra structure: Solar lamps * Repair and renovation of walls and roads * facelift for beaches * ELPIDA signs
  • Environment: Ecological bags to reduce plastic waste * Tamarisk trees for climate
  • Animal care: Sterilisation of wild living cats
