GCM and HMSA express gratitude for community welfare organizations in Melbourne


President of the Greek Community of Melbourne, Bill Papastergiadis, and President of the Hellenic Medical Society of Australia, Marinis Pirpiris, were delighted to host members from Pronia and Fronditha Care at the Greek Centre in Melbourne to present both organizations with a donation.

In a wonderful event hosted last year by the Greek Community of Melbourne and the Hellenic Medical Society of Australia, a Gala fundraising ball was held, as part of the Hellenic Medical Conference, in order to support these two important Hellenic organisations.

Fronditha Care is an award-winning provider in the aged care community and residential care in older Australians with a Greek cultural background and Pronia provides a comprehensive series of ethnospecific support services enabling every member of the community to live their lives in the
way they would like.

Marinis Pirpiris (HMSA), praised both organisations for their dedication to innovations and continuous improvement in their services. He highlighted that Pronia and Fronditha Care play a crucial role in an inclusive sector that values community traditions, cultural practices and personal beliefs.

Ms Elpis Korosidis, President of the Board of Pronia and Ms Tina Douvos Stathopoulos CEO of Pronia accepted the donation on behalf of Pronia. Mr Kosta Livadaras treasurer of Fronditha Care and Faye Spiteri CEO of Fronditha Care accepted donations from the Greek Community of Melbourne and the
Hellenic Medical Society of Australia.

Mr Papastergiadis noted the value of collaborative events like this one, which promote a shared understanding of issues, needs and potential solutions within the community. Collaborations like this enhance the ability to support and uplift the community as a whole.
