Following its active support to the National Health System in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, Alpha Bank proceeds to additional donations of medical equipment and pharmaceutical supplies to the local medical centers of eight Greek islands, as part of its Social Responsibility program "Together, for better Health".
This year, the first “stop" of the Program was the island of Koufonissia, where on Thursday, June 25, 2020, medical equipment and pharmaceutical supplies were delivered to the local Regional Medical Center. By the end of July, Alpha Bank has planned to donate similar equipment to Oinousses, Spetses, Rethymno and Chania in Crete, as well as Gavdos, Sikinos, Skopelos and Agathonissi.
During the delivery to the Medical Center of Koufonissia, Ms. Eleni Stergiou, Deputy Manager of Alpha Bank’s Marketing and Public Relations Division and in charge of the "Together, for better Health" program, said: “Alpha Bank consistently supports the health and safety of our fellow citizens living in the Greek islands, by covering the needs for medical equipment and pharmaceutical supplies of the local medical centers since 2014. We actively continue our program ‘Together, for bettr Health’ to more islands, aiming at having supported 58 Greek islands in total, by the end of the summer”.
The “Together, with better Health” program by Alpha Bank was initiated in 2014, in collaboration with the “Agoni Grammi Gonimi” organization, to improve the quality of health services and to reinforce the sense of safety for the residents of Greek islands.
Since the beginning of the Program and until today, approximately 234,000 units of medical equipment, devices and pharmaceutical supplies have been delivered to 52 islands, supporting the needs of more than 550,000 residents.
Fully aware of its role and responsibility towards society, Alpha Bank will continue to support national medical units, in order to actively contribute to the improvement of public healthcare across Greece.
