The George and Thelma Paraskevaides Foundation for the past 40 years has established a collaboration with the Shriners Hospital for Children in Springfield. Through this collaboration, children from Cyprus and the surrounding Mediterranean area are able to receive life-changing surgery and treatment for serious orthopedic condition. Part of our mission is to assist these children
Recently I was contacted by a representative of Abou Saad Shriners in Panama with a request for $7,500 to be used towards the cost to transport an eight-year-old male burned patient to the Shriners Hospital in Galveston. Immediately we sent them the Grant Request form to be filled out. This was done and returned quickly.
