For the children-victims of war
As a result of an initiative by “ELPIDA” and thanks to the immediate public response to its appeal for solidarity for the children who suffered as a result of the war in the Balkans, 120 tons of emergency supplies, medicine and clothing were sent to the areas affected (June 1999).
- In collaboration with Doctors of the World and the “Foundation for the Child and the Family”, “ELPIDA” created a model surgical unit for the children-victims of war at Grachanista in Kosovo.
The money was collected through a telemarathon organized by Mega Channel and presented by Roula Koromila on 25 April 1999 and elicited a moving audience response.
- A Creative Occupation Education Center for children was built at Zemun (Belgrade, 2006).
