"Pediatric Trauma Care" was founded in 1995 by doctors and parents of patients with the aim to help reduce the number and severity of children's accidents in Greece. With this aim, "Pediatric Trauma Care" organizes and develops the purchase of specialized medical equipment for public pediatrics hospitals throughout Greece. It creates Trauma Centers in pediatrics hospitals and educates children on trauma prevention. In addition, "Pediatric Trauma Care" contributes to the education of doctors, nurses and paramedics.
The grant regards the purchase of medical equipment which will detect and fight respiratory diseases amongst children and babies, for the public pediatric hospitals "Aghia Sophia", "Paidon Pentelis" and the University Hospital "PAGNI". This grant will allow "Pediatric Trauma Care" to initiate the "Support of Children with Respiratory Diseases" Program with the aim to alleviate the medical condition of children affected by respiratory diseases.
