Help Cubs Scout Haris keep smiling! This group supports the efforts of the family of Haris Bravos (Χάρης), who is 11 years old and a Cub Scout in Corfu, Greece. Haris suffers from an aggressive and highly malignant form of cancer (alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma), with his condition deemed to be very urgent. In order to allow transportation of the child abroad to be able to exhaust all possibilities for his treatment, the case of Haris was brought to the public’s attention by his family in a dramatic call for help on 14 April 2016. Thus, collective bodies, friends of the family and the media became of the situation and helped mobilise the general public. Following an unprecedented manifestation of social solidarity and joint efforts Haris’ family was able to arrange his transportation (donated by Aegean Airlines) to Harley Street Clinic in London on 23 April 2016 possible. Donations also made it possible to cover the initial hospitalisation expenses. However, additional donations will be needed to help cover expected additional expenses for a six month medical treatment of Haris, possibly amounting to hundreds of thousands of Euros. Those wishing to financially assist Haris and his family in his titanic effort are welcome to transfer their donations to the family bank account (details of which Haris' parents recently released): Bank: PIRAEUS BANK Account holders: GEORGIA SIAMANDOURA / ELENI SIAMANDOURA / HARIS BRAVOS IBAN : GR2701718800006880123870109 BIC/SWIFT: PIRBGRAA A special Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1629964450578201/) was set up and is managed by the Scouts of Corfu (with support by the National Scout Assocation in Greece) to help increase fund raising efforts. The above poster was one of the first actions launched under the slogan "For Haris..." and since then local groups of the Scouts of Greece across Greece have run a variety of fund raising activities. Expected contributions and support will hopefully allow Haris to ultimately return to Greece and resume his activities in his Scout Group in Corfu (8th Cub Scout Pack, Corfu). So far, the campaign "For Haris..." is supported by Scout Groups across Greece and Cyprus. We hope that you and your friends in your Scout Group will join us in this effort!
