Organ donation
We go on to achive our goal

 

"Iliachtida" a supporting center for children and family proved once more its great sensitivity and the strong effort to inform people about the organ donation.

With the motto: Life is a gift that can be donated, for ten days, placed a kiosk at Nea Smyrni's Main Square full of leaflets about transplantation.

There all the Bord members tried very hard to come close to our citizens about this serious subject.

As Mrs Dora Kassimeris, the president of the association, told us the result was an unaccepted one and continued to say- when ten years ago we started this campaign people were full of suspicion and fear about this subject.

Nowadays the situation has changed completely, once again it was proved that only with a continuous and systematic effort on informing on the importance of Organ Donation we can realize the hopeful message that

"Life is a gift that can be donated"

A JOURNEY OF NOSTALGIA ON THE TRAIN OF "ILIACHTIDA"

 

On Monday, 23 June 2008, on the Eve of St John's Rigana, "Iliachtida" Association - Centre for the Support of Children-Families - organized its yearly event aiming at the revival of the Klidona's custom.

Our fellow citizens, in recognition of the social and cultural work the Association offers to the town of Nea Smyrni, made their presence felt in large numbers.

In the crowded Main Square of our town, students from Nea Smyrni's 1st Gymnasium managed to drive the train of memories and transfer our fellow citizens back to that beautiful age, to Smyrni's neighborhood. Their performances touched the spectators, who thought that it was necessary to revive our homeland's customs as they highlight our cultural heritage and its uniqueness, connecting the present with the past.

Nikos Stefos, a journalist from Nea Smyrni, and head of the "Citizens Alliance for Nea Smyrni" made a significant contribution to the event, as he undertook the task of narrating in a warmly fashion the customs of Klidona's and St John's Rigana. Through his speech, he managed to move all those present and especially the young who ignore our traditions.

Association President Dora Kassimeris, particularly moved by the event, awarded prizes to two respected fellow citizens who have supported the "Iliachtida" Association since its foundation: Vassilis Georgakopoulos, son and worthy successor of Christos Georgakopoulos, principal and owner of the Xenopoulos Academies, and Dimitris Thanasas, principal of Nea Smyrni's 1st Gymnasium.

Nea Smyrni's "Cretan Union" and "St. Paraskevi's Youth Centre" Dance Groups, along with the blazes from May's wreaths, were the crowning moment of the celebration, with spectators staying over until very late in the evening, dancing and in high spirits.

Under the motto "a warm hug for all children", "Iliachtida" is now ready to open its arms to lonely children, to children in need of affection and love, to mothers who are
in need of support, are abused and need to be consulted by specialists on family problems.

Today witnesses a new beginning, as "Iliachtida's" vision becomes a reality. Today sees the opening of the Centre for the Support of Children and Families. Tomorrow, with God's help, the reception centre.

We envisage a society without disorder that respects young people and provides equal opportunities to all. Our mission is to take immediate action to prevent and fight social exclusion, and provide information, with the emphasis placed on children and teenagers aged 6 to 18.

Based on this belief, "Iliachtida" develops new methods and techniques in supporting young people, we are ready to listen and provide help to every problem. Cultural and social activities, and the provision of consultation and support, are some of our immediate goals.

Enhancing the knowledge and abilities of young people, in combination with creative expression and communication, will help them in managing more effectively any difficulties that they may encounter. "Iliachtida" believes that young people can overcome social exclusion, provided that we stand by their side.

It is because of these beliefs we hold so dearly, that we are today pleased to inform you that as on 9 January 2008 "Iliachtida's" Centre for the Support of Children and Families opens up.

Scientific personnel offering its services voluntarily are ready to offer you support, comfort and assistance to any problem. All of our services will be offered free of charge, with a lot of love and understanding.

The Centre for the Support of Children and Families will be housed at 33 Korai Street, Nea Smyrni and will operate during weekdays at present.

 

"Iliachtida" wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, full of health, compassion, creativity and unreserved love towards our fellow citizens, and especially to children.

PRESS RELEASE


With great success on Sunday 14 October 2007 the Municipality of Nea Smyrni, "Iliachtida", the organization for children and family, and the 4th Boy Scouts Regiment, organized a Creativity Competition for the children and teenagers of our town at Nea Smyrni's Main Square, in an effort to promote awareness to children on issues such as the environment and recycling, and the kind of life they would like to live in a more human town.

The event's message was: "I am concerned ... because the future is arriving"

The event's organizers let children dream, demonstrate, awaken and mobilize us by creating designs made of recyclable material, and painting pictures of the town they would like to live in. Definitely a town more friendly, a town with less cement and more flowers that one will like to live in

Despite bad weather conditions, participation in the event was overwhelming!

The children's creations, each one unique and special, made the committee's task, which was comprised of professors in the relevant fields and scholars, in awarding the prizes, very difficult.

The contributions made by the Hellenic Company for Development and Recycling, and by the Environmental Association of the Municipalities of Athens and Piraeus to the event, were both substantial and profound, through their offerings of various gifts and toys that brightened the event.

SUBJECT: Support to Students from Wildfire Disaster Zones

I would like to express my gratitude for the significant assistance that you offered to the students from the wildfire disaster zones of the Prefecture of Ileia. Your kind offerings in stationery material contributed both to the financial alleviation of the families living in the disaster zones and to the smooth beginning of the new academic year, since, thanks to your contribution, all students from the wildfire disaster zones are now equipped with the necessary stationery material.

The sensitivity you demonstrated towards the needs of our schools and students, and your material contribution, also constitute a moral support towards both the student and academic communities which are confronted with a difficult academic year. The solidarity and voluntary support we are receiving from around Greece and abroad, gives us - and especially the younger generations - hope and optimism that we shall be able to reconstruct and establish a promising present and future.

We are extremely pleased, at this critical moment, to have you supporting our schools.
