ND leader welcomes SNF initiative to support Greece’s health sector

Main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday welcomed the signing of a memorandum of collaboration between the Greek State and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, with which the SNF pledged to donate more than 200 million euros to Greece’s health sector.

It was truly fortunate for Greece that the SNF “continues the tradition of the great Greek benefactors, who through their action and contribution placed their stamp on their time and benefited their country,” Mitsotakis commented. He noted that the Greek state had acquired a valuable ally in the effort to improve public health services in many parts of the country.

“I would like to also personally thank the SNF Co-President Andreas Dracopoulos for his great donation and sincerely hope that others will imitate this rare initiative,” Mitsotakis said and added: “I consider that citizens with ample financial means should already take the lead with similar initiatives in the national effort to put the country back on its feet.”
