Provision of interpretation to healthcare services: METAdrasi’s activity is continued and expanded!

After 7 years of tackling, mainly on a volunteer basis, the growing emergency needs for interpretation in hospitals all over Greece, METAdrasibegan, in March 2018, the provision of interpretation to healthcare services via daily presence, with support from the European Commission’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Department (ECHO).
