Georgia Patseas and Silje Kramer decided a while ago that the Skopelos health center needed help when they found out that vital equipment for helping patients was missing. They started a fundraiser to get a defibrillator for the Health center but the donations were so many so several things could be done. First they were able to start building work and a bathroom for attending doctors was created.

Also a lot of equipment was bought.

Here is the link on Facebook where Georgia and Silje show all the receipts. A lot of people also worked voluntarily. The girls effort shows if you persist you will find a solution. They found out there was a problem and they made a big effort to do something about it. Many people can learn from their actions!!!
