Pedtrauma is a non-profit, non-governmental organization which was founded in November 1995 in Athens by a small number of doctors and parents. Its sole purpose was to raise awareness on children's accidents in Greece, reduce their number and severity and to improve care once an accident has occurred.

From 2010 up to the present date over 480.000 children have benefited from our Charity.

Statistics show that up to 500,000 children are injured every year through car accidents, falls, burns, drowning, electrocution and poisoning. About 700 accidents are fatal and 3.000 end in permanent disability. In a country with a population of roughly 10.5 million people this number is huge.

"Pedtrauma" is making a great effort to change the above statistics through the implementation of the following:

a) By opening Trauma Centers in all the major Public Children’s Hospitals in Athens and throughout Greece.

b) By upgrading and equipping the Pediatric Departments and Clinics of the Hospitals and the Health Centers with the necessary machinery.

c) By financing seminars where specialized doctors train surgeons, doctors, nurses, and Ambulance Paramedics on how to help the injured children the fastest and best way possible. We have already managed to train 1.455 doctors, nurses, and Ambulance Paramedics.

d) By educating children on trauma prevention. In particular, we visit schools and talk to children, teachers and parents on how to prevent accidents from happening. To date we have spoken to 42.873 children and 3.040 teachers and parents. It has been statistically proven that by introducing Trauma Prevention into schools the number and severity of accidents occurring has been reduced by up to 50%.

More specifically we have managed to upgrade and equip 35 Departments in 30 Hospitals / Trauma Centers:
