Support of the Hellenic Coast Guard

In order to provide a substantive and comprehensive contribution to crucial humanitarian issues, such as the refugee crisis, the OTE Group supports the Hellenic Coast Guard's work. Specifically, during the period of 2017, the OTE Group offered over €160,000 to repair and maintain the Hellenic Coast Guard's vessels, as well as for rescue and survival equipment such as life jackets, blankets, first-aid kits, gloves, masks, tents and isothermal suits, which are being used by frontline rescuers on a daily basis.

In 3 years, € 700,000 has been provided for the repair and maintenance of 65 vessels of the Coast Guard that contributed to the rescue of 125,600 people in danger at sea.
