In December, IOCC, in collaboration with the American Pancretan Union, delivered medical supplies to Annousakeio Therapeutic Center on Crete. The items, valued at over $345,000, included surgical and lab equipment, orthopedic items, physiotherapy equipment, consumable items, and more, and will support the continued operation of the center in its community.

Part of IOCC’s Give for Greece program involves supporting agricultural associations as they work to increase productivity. The ag association Trifilia, which has 20 members and is located in the Mesinia region of the Peloponnese, called IOCC’s partner Apostoli recently to donate one ton of fresh produce. Apostoli distributed the tomatoes, lemons, peppers, and eggplant from Trifilia to 200 families in need.
