Human Aid Now provides medical care on Samos, Greece. Due to overcrowded camps and a lack of services, medical conditions on the island are extremely poor. With a group of volunteers and translators, Human Aid Now provides basic medical care to over one hundred beneficiaries per day, and ensures medical referrals to hospitals if needed. Due to lockdown rules during the Corona pandemic, additional medical office space is needed in order to reduce the amount of beneficiaries and volunteers per room. Due to travel restrictions international volunteers cannot presently travel to the island. Therefore, Human Aid Now depends upon volunteers remaining in Greece during the lockdown measures in order to keep these operations running. The Stiftungsfonds assists Human Aid Now with 3.427,50€ to pay for enhanced medical premises, volunteer accommodation and food.
