Collaboration with “ELPIDA”
HELMEPA was pleased to partner with ELPIDA – Association of Friends of Children with Cancer, delivering presentations to children and parents about the importance of the seas and ways we can all contribute to their preservation.
Following this initiative, HELMEPA participated in the summer event “The Country of Hope” that took place on July 2nd and 3rd at the hospital and its courtyard, where the children had the opportunity to enjoy a tour of our mobile exhibition, get exposed and learn about the marine environment. Games such as air hockey, soccer, carousel, robotics, magic shows and a lot of painting with HELMEPA staff, parents and medical personnel followed thereafter.
It was a special experience to be in this wonderful place and contribute to the significant work of ELPIDA. We are looking forward to similar activities in the future.
