Projects under the Presidency of Costas Georgallis
To encourage the “Karaiskakion” Bone Marrow Foundation
For this project started the procedure of a Matching Grant, in cooperation with District 7710 and 14 Rotary Clubs within the District (contribution $10.000) and our Club (contribution $10.000), under the coordination of Rot. Popi Kanari. The Matching Grant was approved and the total amount of $33.644 was raised two years later and given to the Foundation. (Photo below):
With various activities our Club tried also to support the above Foundation to increase the bone marrow donors registered at the Bank.
