Givmed – Support to Care Homes with Personal Protective Equipment and Disinfectants

During the Covid-19 crisis, some of the most vulnerable organizations, non-profit care-homes housing elderly patients, were left without crucial personal protective equipment (PPE) and no way to source or purchase them, especially as equipment was in very short supply. This endangered the lives of the care-home’s elderly patients and the health of their staff. TIMA provided a grant to Givmed, to source and provide crucial PPE equipment to care-homes across Greece. Together, both Givmed and TIMA managed to source 22,250 surgical masks, 150,000 single-use gloves, 300 protective goggles and 390 litres of disinfectant covering two months’ worth of supplies for 1,312 people; enough to provide vital protection and significant relief to these NGO’s and their elderly patients.

The care homes include:

Nea Ionia Panagia Eleousa Care Home (Athens)

Charitable Institution “The Good Samaritan”
