And finally, we received significant donations from groups supporting our clinic from Hamburg Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, Austria and Switzerland as well as individuals from France, Italy and Canada.
With these offerings and the very hard work done by our volunteers who check, organize and insure that each package of medicine that reaches us is in proper order, we can provide medicines to our own patients, and can respond to requests coming in from organizations throughout Greece.
|The pharmacy of MCCH was able to not only serve our patients, but to pass medicine on to others. In December we were able to fulfill requests for medicine and medical supplies to:
Additionally we took the initiative to distribute medicines, special milk and food supplements to Community Services departments of Public Hospitals.
The volunteers of MCCH work to ensure that, as far as they are able, no resources are lost.
We want those contributing items to our clinic to know that each gift is deeply appreciated and fully utilized and gives relief to those going through difficult times.

With the participation of the hundreds of friends of our clinic, we held the Christmas bazaar organized by Friends of MCCH.
On Sunday 9 December at the cultural center of Helliniko-Argyroupoli municipality young and old flocked to sample home made goodies, choose books, Christmas gift items, liqueurs, marmalades.
Good weather insured the BBQ was a roaring success and a lot of goodies were to be had in the food hall.
For the young ones, face-painting, Isidoros the clown and lots of activities were on show. Grandma Reginna and friends provided music, acted out stories and led all in Christmas carols.

| The Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helleniko is a volunteer clinic providing cost-free primary health care to the uninsured, the unemployed who are without resources. We believe that that ALL should have equal and cost free access to the public health system.
