Crown Princess Katherine & Lifeline Hellas Deliver Incubators to Neonatal Unit

ATHENS – Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine and the Board of Directors of the international humanitarian organization Lifeline Hellas attended the opening of the extension of the department of the Neonatal Unit at Elena Venizelou Hospital, which was provided by Lifeline Hellas thanks to the donation of Alexia Stella Mantzari and her company A.S. Marine.

Thanks to this very important donation, six additional incubator places were created, and the newborns will no longer need to be transferred to another hospital. Also, Mr. Dimitris and Mrs. Eleni Bousis donated an incubator in order to support the operation of the new department.

As the Government of Greece traditionally recognizes the importance of HRH Crown Princess Katherine and Lifeline Hellas work and provides their support, the opening was honored by the presence of Minister of Health Thanasis Plevris, as well as donor Alexia Stella Mantzaris, Elena Venizelou Hospital Deputy Director Eva Kontostathakou, donors Dimitris and Eleni Bousis, Neonatal Unit Director Dr. Iraklis Salvanos, Lifeline Hellas President Dr. Zisis Boukouvalas, together with other members of the Lifeline Hellas Board.
