Blood was given/donated this week by Skopelitans. The mobile blood unit was stationed for one and a half days in the harbour. If you hear that somebody on the island needs blood you can call the hospital in Volos and tell them to which patient you want to give that blood and they will take care of it. It happened to me (Daphne) once when an aunt of my husband needed blood. The blood stayed in the family, as it were.
All children of the elementary school and the high school could visit this week, free of charge, the dentists of the organization The Smile of a Child, whose travelling dental clinic visits schools all over Greece and makes it possible for children to have their teeth checked and cleaned. A great initiative.
