MUNICIPALITY OF ANTIPAROS

We thank our volunteer doctors of the Social Non-profit Association "Aegean Seagulls" for the valuable assistance, that they offered to the children of our island during their visit at 11th ,12th and 13th October 2013 .
The mission consisted of doctors with specialized skills relating to children , who examined 124 children , infants and adolescents , provided free primary medical care, advice and guidance where the problems ,that they diagnosed, were unknown until today , made vaccines and minor (gags etc).
The large turnout of children and their parents showed once again the very serious health problem and especially the lack of a pediatrician in our island .
Such initiatives and actions, are supported and endorsed by our Municipality.
Congratulations to "Aegean Seagulls'' for this initiative. May they be an example to be emulated by other institutions.

 OFFICE OF MAYOR SIFNOU
Thank PRESS RELEASE

The Municipality of Sifnos and the Mayor Andreas Babounis sincerely thank the nonprofit social club "Aegean Seagulls", who visited the island on 6th and 7th April 2013 and provided selflessly primary medical care to children up to 16 years, and also medical interconnecting with Tzanio Hospital. The doctors examined 138 children - infants and teens. They carried out vaccinations, blood tests, x-rays, and in some cases referred to Athens for further care. Also the pediatrician Mr. John Papandreou discussed with teenagers issues related to school bullying.
Considering that the island has no longer a pediatrician, the offering of the " Aegean Seagulls" becomes even more important for parents and children, not only to treat diseases but also for the timely diagnosis of pediatric problems. The weather overstretched the doctors, but we are grateful because not only they didn't cancel their visit, but worked tirelessly for two days and relieved parents from the stress, time and travel expenses to Athens.
Special thanks to the management and the staff of the Regional Clinic of Sifnos, Mr. Nikos Kakakis, who voluntarily placed himself in the services of "Aegean Seagulls" for all the weekend, and to the person, who is responsible for health issues, the municipal counselor Mr. Stavros Kalogirou for the coordination, assistance and the offer of 3 cars of his company for moving doctors.
"Aegean Seagulls", thank you and wait for your next visit! You gave us the message that as long as there are people, the present gets light and the future hope!

The Mayor of Sifnos
Andreas Babounis

Thank you letter to the “Aegean Seagulls”

Dear friends,

It was a great honor and joy to have you again on our island. This time you arrived not as simple visitors but as messengers of good news. You brought messages of solidarity, compassion, cooperation and love for fellow men. Personally the joy was even greater since it was our summer meeting-discussion that led to the birth of a real friendship.

On my behalf and on behalf of the whole Town council of Sikinos, we would like to sincerely thank you and your sponsors for everything you have offered our island. From the large quantity of medicine that is already being distributed to the people in need, to the medical equipment (monitor, stretcher, mobile defibrillator and otoscope. Furthermore for the presents, clothes and toys that brought joy and smiles to the school children. In theses dire times that our country is facing, not only financially, such initiatives gain greater importance and become a true example to be followed.

They fill our hearts with joy, strength, hope and optimism for the future. With initiatives such as these we feel that we are not alone but, there are people who think of us and care about us. They are not led by personal gain but by the goodness of their hearts and souls. You have the respect and deep appreciation of all of us! From the depths of my heart I wish that our cooperation continues. May all of you be well.

With friendly regards,

Vice-Mayor of Sikinos
