The Platinum Sponsor of the event is Tototheo Maritime, supporters WISTA Hellas and HELMEPA and Charity Sponsor is Pioneer Marine where the money will go directly from the sponsor to the charity foundation Galilee.

Galilee Palliative Care Centre provides palliative medical and nursing care, as well as psychological, social, and spiritual support to patients and their families.  The aim is for all those who come to Galilee to be able to discover how much more life there can be in each moment.

The world would be better if all patients with a life-threatening disease could spend as much time as possible with those who love them.

Galilee offers palliative care to patients with cancer and motor neuron disease (ALS):

Galilee interdisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapist,s and priests, supported by the administrative team and our trained volunteers.

Having as guiding principle that palliative care and support should be provided irrespective of a person’s social standing, financial circumstances, cultural background or religion, Galilee offers their services free of charge.

The Galilee Palliative Care Centre was founded in 2010 under the auspices of the Holy Metropolis of Mesogaia and Lavreotiki, bringing to life the vision of Metropolitan Nikolaos: “Our aim is to relieve pain, to embrace the suffering of others and to share the burden of the patients and their families—to support them in every possible way.”  This is the essence of palliative care—to relieve the symptoms of the illness, both spiritual and physical, to improve quality of life, and to ascribe value to every moment.

The Galilee Palliative Care Centre is the first of its kind in Greece, and the first palliative care center to offer a comprehensive range of support.

Galilee has provided care to more than 1,350 patients through the Diocese of Mesogaia and Lavreotiki, and also throughout Attica supported by contributions and sponsors.
