Giving Day News from Lesvos

Dear Hellenic Society of Maine members, partners, donors and friends:

We have a lot to be grateful for — the container of medical supplies arrived at the Mytilene General Hospital yesterday the 23 of November 2016 without any problems! Hoooray!

The container cleared customs in Mytilene early in the morning, and they started unloading around 10 AM. Attached is a photo of hospital administration in front of the open doors.

Thank you to all who made this humanitarian project a success. We’ll have more information and photos in our next newsletter.
