Pediatric Trauma Care

Pedtrauma is a non-profit, non-governmental organization which was founded in 1998 in Athens by a small number of doctors and parents. Its sole purpose is to raise awareness on children's accidents in Greece, reduce their number and severity and to improve care once an accident has occurred.

Trauma Centers

We open Trauma Centers in all the major Public Children’s Hospitals in Athens and throughout Greece.

Upgrade and Equipment of Paediatric Departments

We upgrade and equip the Paediatric Departments and Clinics of the Hospitals and the Health Centers with the necessary machinery.

Medical Seminars Program "Leonidas Georgopoulos"

We help finance seminars where specialized doctors train surgeons, doctors, nurses, and Ambulance Paramedics on how to help the injured children the fastest and best way possible.

Education on Trauma Prevention

We visit schools and talk to children, teachers and parents about how to prevent accidents from occurring.
