The nonprofit organization Regeneration & Progress (R&P) finding ways to continue its work under the constraints imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization is adapting to the new reality with programs that make good use of technology to carry out its mission.
R&P’s Sports Excellence program is offering interactive online training sessions to athletes ages 12 to 18 and to coaches of handball, water polo, canoeing and kayaking and volleyball. At the same time, the latest issue of Sports Excellence’s online magazine offers useful sports and injury prevention tips.
Residents of remote Greek areas, which are usually visited in person by the Mobile Medical Units, can consult MMU doctors remotely via phone until they visit again.
Likewise, since it’s not possible for the sports paths program to travel to the Greek islands at the moment, the program’s trainers are presenting online sports programs and activities for the whole family. During this period, R&P’s associates are organizing online educational seminars for doctors, nurses, medical students, and health scientists and have also designed and delivered a physical education program for teachers.
The sports programs organized by R&P at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens will soon be available in online form.
In addition to its own programs, R&P is using its website and social media channels to share useful information for helping keep the elderly, children, and vulnerable groups safe during this difficult period.
