please accept our best wishes for a healthy and peaceful 2021.
Thank you for donating to our project of building a playground for recovering children, during a difficult past year. Because of your support, we are very close to building the playground and we are slowed down only by the current health and safety protocols.
We have researched the best options and companies to instruct with the building of the play area and we are ready to order the equipment whenever access to the hospital will be normalized again. We really can’t wait to show you the children using the playground while they recover at the hospital. These are difficult times, but together we are bringing some happiness to many children and their families. We will keep you updated on the progress of our project but if you have any comment, advice or questions let us know and we will answer the best we can.
Best wishes from Crete For Life team!

Thanks to your donations we are very close to completing this project! We have also been fundraising locally, and we need just another €2100 to reach our final target.
Since she was a toddler Anastasia has been hospitalized for long periods because of cystic fibrosis, missing school, her family and friends. She is now 13 years old and has told us that a good reason to make a playground in paediatrics is for the children to go out to play after a difficult examination and to forget that they are in a hospital and to forget their pains.
Crete’s university hospital caters for thousands children every year, many suffering from chronic and critical illnesses and disabilities. Some of the therapies and visits can make the children very apprehensive and stressed, the head nurse of the paediatric department has explained, and the completed playground visible from the clinic, will help shift their focus and assist in their recovery.
At present we are gathering the final estimates for the completion of the playground, the volunteers have almost completed the colourful mosaic, we have finalized all the necessary paperwork and we are ready to go. Even during such difficult times, you are choosing to support these children through our project, and we are truly grateful to you. Just a bit more and we are there!
Our hopes of meeting our fundraising target have been surpassed. We are now over 25% of the initial target, with three days still to go!
Thanks to each of you, especially during such uncertain times, for helping to build the playground that will bring happiness to many sick children here in Crete. Recently, many of you have donated in memory of a kind friend who loved children, what a wonderful way to remember her by.
As you can see from the short video and photos, we have started with the mosaic, sorting hundreds of recycled colorful tiles. The mosaic is 2 x 4 meters and it will take a while before it is finished.
We would love to keep you posted on the develpment of the playground. If you have donated anonymously, please sign up on our website, we would love to stay in touch with you!
