Of the many unsung heroes of this crisis, the Hellenic Coast Guard can be proud of the thousands of lives saved at sea over the past 2 years. With the support of Greek private sector companies such at the OTE Group of Companies, the Hellenic Coast Guard has rescued over 74,000 people at risk of drowning in the Aegean.
Even though the Greek private sector has been hard-hit by the economic crisis, they have stepped in to support Greek citizens and refugees in this difficult time. They have protected their corporate social responsibility budgets from cuts, and they have used the funds to support programs with significant social impact.
Please watch this video to see for yourself the impact that a real commitment to social responsibility has made.
