HYGEIA: School supplies for the children of the homeless of Athens

HYGEIA Group is continuing its aid program for the homeless of Athens, this time on
the occasion of the new school year.

On Friday, September 7, representatives from HYGEIA Group visited the City of Athens
Homeless Shelter (KYADA) and distributed school bags, notebooks, pencils, pens, pencil
cases, coloring pads and other supplies to primary and secondary school students. The
action aims at providing support to underprivileged families in view of the new school

The program, which was launched in January 2012, includes a series of actions aiming at
addressing the basic needs of the homeless and poor in the City of Athens. To date,
HYGEIA Group has already donated a cargo van, two commercial refrigerators, food,
medications and medical supplies, sleeping bags, and disposable food containers to the
Homeless Shelter. A roof has also been constructed over the outdoor area of the Shelter.

Commenting on the initiative, HYGEIA Group’s CEO, Ms Areti Souvatzoglou, stated:
“The new school year signals a starting point of new experiences for both parents and
children. In these difficult times, our aim is to make a contribution to the everyday lives
of these school children, by providing them with all the necessary items for a better and
more creative school year. The unflagging support of the MIG companies and the Group
employees encourages us to continue our social contribution for the benefit of the people
in need.”
