Hospial Transfer Project

In collaboration with SMH, the medical NGO on Chios, we are filling an essential need for transfers between Vial camp and the hospital.

At the beginning, there were charities on the island offering free transportation for scheduled appointments at the hospital. When these charities left the island, several organisations contributed funds to continue the service, however this ended at the beginning of 2022, leaving a gap again. With SMH, we spoke to the doctors who stressed the importance that the people make their appointments, especially the regular appointments. As an example, for a pregnant woman there is only one gynecologist at the hospital so if the appointment is missed it will have to be rescheduled to 15 days later.
 
After a successful fundraise, we have now set up the project! With an estimated 50 transfers from Vial to the hospital per month, we are so grateful that this gap is now being filled.
