Supporting those in need during the coronavirus pandemic via our new Corporate Social Responsibility Department

Jun 18, 2020 | Latest News

Navarino has recently introduced a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Department into its organizational structure, which has been ensuring we are meeting our CSR obligations to the wider community around us. The extraordinary times we currently live in due to the Coronavirus pandemic has given our new CSR department several opportunities to look around us to see where we can provide support or assistance and we are happy to have been able to provide the following to the local community in Greece-

  • 1,000 simple medical masks and 700 advanced medical masks were sourced and provided to the Hippocrateio General Hospital of Athens.
  • Several hundred food support packages were donated to families in the Municipality of Piraeus, as part of the local council program for families and individuals in need.
  • 12 tablets were donated to the Saint Anna institution for girls, which provides distance learning opportunities to young girls in need.

Our CSR Manager, Tassos Barbas said ‘Navarino is very lucky to be in a position where we can take steps to provide some support to those who are less fortunate or who need some help getting by. It is therefore with great pleasure that we have taken these steps to provide a small amount of assistance to those who often do not have access to a fully developed social or economic support network. It is my intention to use my position at Navarino to help grow a support network that takes into account the social, economic and environmental needs of our communities and to bring assistance to them wherever it is needed most.’
