In Greece, the SNF is pouring 450 million dollars into the construction of three new hospitals, emergency and diagnostic equipment, trauma care training, nursing education, and infectious disease training.

In addition, SNF is seeking ways to address the growing needs of frontline hospital and health care workers in the near and long term.

At the same time, the SNF will work with public and private entities and grantee partners to promote physical wellbeing, mental health, and socioeconomic welfare. More specifically, such initiatives include ensuring food security for people in need while cooperating with international organizations to offer psychological and social support.

We will keep listening and responding to the evolving needs of our grantee partners as they continue their critical work under these difficult conditions, and we will support them to the best of our ability,” said SNF co-president Andreas Dracopoulos.
