Public Health Aid to Greece by the OMOGENIA

April 27th, 2015

On March 31, 2015, a conference on the Public Health Crisis in Greece was held in New York City by the major Hellenic American organizations for the Omogenia of the United States and the Greek public to be informed of the significant patriotic contributions of the Omogenia to alleviate the humanistic crisis in Greece.
The conference was organized by the Federation of Hellenic Medical Societies of North America and the Hellenic Medical Society of New York under the auspices of the General Counsel of Greece Honorable Mr. George Iliopoulos.
Dr. George Patoulis, President of the Hellenic Medical Society of Athens and President of the Mayors’ Association of Greece spoke of the Public Health situation in Greece and his efforts to gather drugs and distribute to the needy at Greece’s border areas. Mr. Phillip Frangos, Supreme President of the Order of AHEPA summarized the health supplies, hospital equipment, and food donated by AHEPA/IOCC over the past three years in Greece. The Hellenic Medical Society of New York demonstrated their ongoing support of vaccinations, philanthropic organizations, and transfer of medical knowledge to Greece. The World Hellenic Biomedical Association summarized its educational programs. The Hellenic Relief Foundation at zero administrative cost has been providing healthy meals purchased in Greece to thousands of needy people. The Hellenic American organizations that have funded the building of hospitals in Greece and are continuing to partially pay for their operations include the AHEPA, Panarcadian Federation of America, the Pancretan Federation, the Panchian Federation, the Panlaconian Federation, the Panlemnian Federation, and the Panepirotic Federation. The Athenians’ Society of New York has consistently donated to the Public Neonatal Unit of Athens, Greece. Individual donors such as Dr. Apostolos Tambakis and Mr. Stavros Vouyiouklakis have also made major philanthropic contributions that have met obstacles with the bureaucracy.
All the Hellenic American organizations after the meeting agreed to work with the appropriate authorities in Greece to resolve the following issues:
1. Broadening of the educational programs and the philanthropic contributions with transparency.
2. Establishment of a permanent position for the Hellenic Medical Society of New York on the KESY (Hellenic Central Committee on Health) meeting monthly in Athens
3. Representation of the Omogenia on each Hospital Board of public hospitals that the Hellenic American organizations are funding
4. Abolishment of the FPA Hellenic Republic tax on charitable contributions of the Omogenia.
