In 2015, the humanitarian organization “Coeurs pour tous Hellas” was founded in order to expand the humanitarian actions of the foundation in Greece. In march 2019, the “Kalangos Foundation” will start editing  the “Journal of Humanitarian Cardiovascular Medicine” which will give the opportunity to physicians of low income countries to publish their own scientific and humanitarian experiences in cardiovascular medicine.

Since 1998, more than 17’000 children were treated by the teams of the “Kalangos Foundation” either in their own countries or in several medical care units of Europe
  • to provide medical and surgical training facilities to medical and paramedical staff of different middle and low income countries.
