Would you be interested in the opportunity to work with an expanding registered UK and Greek charity providing medical care to refugees in Greece?
We are looking for experienced and committed individuals to join our Board of Trustees.
“We believe that healthcare is a human right, not a privilege”
Kitrinos Healthcare’s mission is the relief of sickness and the preservation of health amongst refugees by providing healthcare services to those in need. We have been assigned by the Greek Ministry of Health and Migration to care for refugees in Greece.
We have operated in 20 camps and locations across Greece, and currently provide healthcare services in Kara Tepe Camp, Lesvos Island. Our services include triage & referral, wound care and chronic health care, and we are currently the only NGO on the ground providing free medication for those with chronic illnesses.
What are we looking for in our trustees?
Kitrinos Healthcare is growing and expanding its services in Greece. We are seeking committed individuals to strengthen the board at this critical and exciting time. We wish to recruit enthusiastic Trustees with an interest in humanitarianism and empathy towards refugees and asylum seekers.
