Man canoes around Crete in support of centre for disabled

A local man paddled around the island of Crete in a canoe, staying at sea for roughly one month and covering a distance of 830 nautical miles, to send a loud message in support of the Hania Centre of Daily Care and Occupation for people with special needs.
Giorgos Perrakis, who lives in Hania, began his voyage on July 4 from the city’s Venetian seaport where he returned a month later to be warmly received by centre board members, parents and children who stay at the centre, as well as, local administration authorities.
“It was a great endeavour but its purpose was even greater,” he underlined.     
His initiative was not held for fundraising purposes but aimed to highlight the work done at the centre.
