Building on its already rich contribution to the Health sector and prioritizing the improvement of living conditions for children, OPAP undertook the initiative to renovate the two most important, oldest and largest Children Hospitals in Greece; “Aghia Sophia” and “Pan. & Aglaias Kyriakou”.
The key objectives of OPAP’s Children Hospital Renovation program are to:
- operationally and technically upgrade at the utmost the Hospital Nursing Units and Outpatient Clinics in need
- create a pleasant therapeutic environment for the sick children and their relatives via the proper design, chromatic treatment and the entire renovation of hospital premises, waiting and examination rooms of young patients
Moreover a significant part of the initiative is to sensitize and engage the general public and OPAP employees. In this framework, OPAP, since 2014, implements the “Route of Contribution” activation on the occasion of the Athens Authentic Marathon, inviting people to download the application and through a series of interactive actions and games to contribute virtually in the renovation project. In total, since 2014, 142.914 people have downloaded the application, collecting more than 863.000 euro of virtual contribution, which were automatically translated to financial investment by OPAP for the Hospital renovation program.
