Arcadian members of the Greek Diaspora have offered computers and an air conditioner to special-needs schools in Tripoli, southern Greece, after raising money in a fundraiser dance which took place during the International Pan-arcadian Conference, proving once again that Greeks abroad are always responding to their homeland’s need.
During a modest ceremony in Tripoli’s old town hall, in the presence of Mayor Dimitris Pavlis and the President of Pan-arcadian Federation of Greece Vasilis Giannakakos, the President of the World Pan-arcadian Confederation, Christos Tsimogiannis, delivered the computers and air conditioner to teachers of the special-needs school in Tripoli and the Special Education Vocational and Training School of Kapsia.
Tsimogiannis noted that Arcadian expats believe it is their duty to make a donation to their homeland and that is why the confederation board had decided to donate to the schools. He also added that at this time it was all they could offer and said he hoped that their donation would help the students who need all the support they can get.
Pavlis noted that the donation was necessary for the two schools and it would be very important for the education of children with special needs. He also thanked the Arcadian expats, who have always found a way to help their homeland.
Finally, teachers of both schools received the donation, thanked the expatriates and stressed that the equipment was necessary and it would not go to waste.
