ATHENS - A lot of companies from various sectors of the economy, as well as public benefit institutions, are giving their own "present" in the fight against the pandemic that Greece and the whole world are facing.

Private clinics, energy companies, shipping and food industries and a series of other companies have proved their solidarity either through medical equipment financing or discounts and offers to consumers.

On the one hand, the public health system is being strengthened with medical equipment and consumables, such as masks and uniforms, in the difficult battle against coronavirus. On the other hand, citizens who have been hit by the crisis are being provided with a number of relief measures that will lift some of the financial burden they are called upon to bear.
