Humanitarian Action for Coeur pour tous Hellas // by arChive

This is the first major stop of our extraordinary project. Documenting the humanitarian life service of the very well known pediatric cardiac surgeon Prof. Afksendiyos Kalangos. The man behind over 15.000 surgeries over the last decade to poor children and people in need. The man behind Hearts for All.

It is there where words can become inadequate.

 The presentation of this conceptual slide show, took place in an event organized at the Grande Bretagne Hotel by Cœur pour tous Hellas, where Greece celebrated the beginning of the humanitarian activities of the Association. Present were The President of Greece, Mr Prokopis Pavlopoulos, the mayor of Athens, representatives of the Parliament and political parties, the President of The Red Cross, the representatives of the Patriarch of Constantinople and of the archbishop of Athens and Greece as well as Her Royal Highness Princess Catherine of Serbia and many more exceptional personalities.

 

We would like to thank the Professor for trusting us, for being  the cause of our inspiration as photographers, and of our hopes as human beings. His efforts to be prompt in any of our calls is another of his many characteristics that never stopped to amaze us. Last but not least, we would like to thank Ms Berrin Okutan for her valuable assistance in making everything possible, Florence Nightingale Hospital for the hospitality and the families that honored us with their trust.

 We are honored to be part of an exceptional project. There is much to be said and a lot more we like to share with you.

Documenting Prof. A. Kalangos

Documenting Professor Afksentiyios Kalangos

 

With very little time left to think, we found ourselves between operating tables, anaesthetic machines, monitoring equipments, anaesthetic drug carts, equipment, intravenous poles and sterile drapes, dreams, hopes, loved ones, real life.

 

It always begins with an idea – a spark. Amazing in how it transforms. To light. Its always light. After all, this is what life is all about.

Then comes value in what you do. And the meaning of it  all. To be able to communicate a concept or an idea worth sharing. Meet Prof. Kalangos, cardiac surgeon, philantropist, creator of the humanitarian association “Cœurs Pour Tous” (Hearts for All).

We have the privilege to spend time with him documenting his life service.

 

This is more or less how it all started. In believing. And in the amazing connection between people, who fit in, as in a puzzle. Special people, on missions beyond. In Hearts for All “Coeurs Pour Tous”, where borders and boundaries are invisible.
