Give him wheels

Note; after publishing this story there were several readers with information about the wheelchair that could be useful to the health center employees who are trying to get the money together for the wheelchair. If you want to help please go to the health center on weekdays and talk to Christos please.

A fellow Skopelitan who suffered a stroke is ready to “roam” the streets again but he will have difficulty to walk well the rest of his life. Life after a stroke is not the end and this is why his family is looking for an electric wheelchair. Unfortunately this wheelchair costs 3000 euros.

(we assume it is a wheel chair like this)

The health center in the persons of Lili and Christos are trying to raise the money to buy this wheelchair for our fellow Skopelitan. Everybody who donates will be recorded on a list. Any donations, small and big are very welcome! Please go to the health center and ask for Lili and Christos. We will keep you up to date.
