The Aegean Team is a non-profit civil partnership that runs purely on a volunteer basis, and has been active for more than 20 years providing social and medical services. Its mission covers exclusively public benefit, charity, humanitarian, ecological, nature loving and cultural purposes, which aim at improving the quality of life of the residents in the small remote islands of the Aegean Sea.
With more than 10 RIBs, a specialized sea ambulance and dozens of volunteers, from which more than 40 are doctors of more than 20 specialties, the Team has traveled more than 20,000 nautical miles and has visited most of the islands in the archipelago.
The Aegean Team’s contribution is manifold. Through its medical department, it has offered medical examinations to more than 20,000 residents. At the same time, it has equipped medical facilities, provided information and telemedicine equipment, and ambulances.
With regard to island infrastructures, it has undertaken the installation of rapid water filtration systems, reverse osmosis water filters, desalination units, the construction of water supply networks, multi-functional sports grounds, 5x5 soccer fields, children’s playgrounds, and indoor sports halls. Special care is given to providing schools with supervisory, educational and entertaining material, while more than 7 tons of materials have already been transported and distributed to our islands. In addition, it has helped organize speeches, shadow theater performances and music concerts.
The Team operates within a stable structural and institutional environment that has allowed it to run effectively for 22 years now. The residents of the islands and the team's sponsors/enablers support and honor the Aegean Team with their trust, giving it the drive to continue its vision and expand the scope of its activities.
