THE AHEPA HOSPITAL PROJECT
HISTORY:

The main function of the AHEPA Hospital Committee is to source medical equipment for two Greek hospitals: Evangelismos in Athens and AHEPA in Thessaloniki.
2013: AHEPA Canada Foundation raised funds and donated much needed medical equipment to Evangelismos Hospital in Athens.
2015: AHEPA Hospital Committee (thanks to Br. Vogis) received a generous donation of medical equipment from a New York area hospital and shipped them to The AHEPA Hospital in Thessaloniki.
We are currently in negotiations with a hospital in Ottawa to donate hospital beds. Specs have been sent to Alfred Barich and we are waiting for him to confirm.
WHAT WE NEED:

  • Equipment should be no more than 10 years old.
