On Tuesday, 19th of March 2019, the female population visiting the Center for Social Integration and Employability of Caritas Hellas in Kipseli gathered for a seminar dedicated especially to them. The subjects discussed were related to the structure and function of the female body, the changes that it experiences during and after pregnancy and what they should pay attention to concerning their health during this period. In addition, the breastfeeding period of the infant, and what is related to it during the first months of its growth, was analyzed. Lastly, there was an important reference to all the hygiene rules that women should know and adhere to in their everyday lives.
AMURTEL’s midwives did not leave any of the many interesting questions from the participating women unanswered, providing them also with all of the guiding information about specialized medical and pharmaceutical organizations that can serve their individual requests. As Caritas Hellas, we are very grateful for such fruitful partnerships and we hope to continue in this direction and in the future!
The seminar is part of the Program “Social and Economic Integration of Refugees and Immigrants in Athens” concerning the support and integration of refugees and immigrants in Greek society. The Program is implemented by Caritas Hellas and is funded by Caritas Switzerland.
