  ...Tail wind

    «The passions are the winds which fill the sails of the vessel»

Our soul is like a box. We are always in search of passion and tenderness to feel complete: friends, true relationships, the need to take care of people in need, the gentle action to comfort their pain and to offer our kind support.

      From time to time this box is overflowed with this sweet urge, the kind passion to offer to each other.
At the moment the box opens and the passion is transformed to tail wind that pushes us to the next destination.

       ... for the people...
       ... by the people.
       ... to ease their pain.

    The last time that it was literally overflowed, was Friday, March 10, 2017. This was the time when the box opened and the tail-wind to push us to our young and older friends to the island of Kythnos.

    The medical needs of the children are great .Kythnos is a small place with the special conditions of an island making them look even more urgent.

On Sunday, March 12, 2017 we are ready for departure...
...Murphy's Law strikes again.
We got informed of two emergencies, a "child with fever" and a "child with bronchiolitis" and the wind power at 8 Beaufort. We have responded promptly. Once more it was confirmed that the presence of a pediatrician on the island is more than necessary.

Late in the evening of the same day we safely return in our base ...
Our soul box starts its search to get filled up once more.
Already our soul is preparing to fly to the next destination.

We would like to express our gratitude to the Mayor of Kithnos Mr. Stamatis Garderis, the Vice Mayor Mr. Georgios Iliou and their collegues for their tireless efforts helping our team in the organization and successful completion of our mission.
The mission was accomplished thanks to the unwavering support AEGEAN AIRLINES of our Great Sponsor, who with great social sensitivity always supports the children. We thank the company LALIZAS that constantly attends to our needs in the marine equipment
