Children’s Guest House “Iliahtida”

Children’s Guest House “Iliahtida” – A grand vision of the Association has always been the construction of the Children’s Guest House “Iliahtida” within the premises of the University Hospital of Heraklion (Pa.G.N.I.). The construction works started in 2008 and the Guest House opened its doors to the public on Monday November 18, 2013.

This Guest House, which nowadays is fully operational, was created to provide free hospitality for the children who suffer from neoplastic diseases and are being treated in the Pediatric Hematology - Oncology Clinic of the University Hospital of Heraklion (Pa.G.N.I.) and their families. It is a state-of-the-art building of 700sq.m. with 6 fully equipped rooms and can accommodate up to 12 people.

There is also a fully equipped shared kitchen, rooms for leisure and relaxation for the adults, a playground for the entertainment of the little patients, a classroom with internet access, a facility for washing machines and dryers, as well as a multi-use venue that also serves the actions of the volunteer group of Iliahtida.

The construction of the Children’s Guest House was a result of hard work and lots of love, but its realization was mainly achieved by the financial support of the Members and Friends of Iliahtida Association. Stavros Niarchos Foundation provided the equipment and the building completion works of the Guest House. The businessmen of Crete have been a great support for this project, as they have helped in its completion with their donations. Finally, this project would not have been completed without the excellent cooperation with the Pa.G.N.I. Administration.
