80-Year-Old Woman Leaves 2 Million Euros and 30 Apartments to Nursing Home

An old woman’s death became a breath of new life for the nursing home of Larisa, which was facing serious economic problems in the last years due to the recession plauging Greece and was set to close down.

The only beneficiary of the 80-year-old lady’s will was the nursing home, which will now receive 2 million Euros from a bank account and approximately 30 highly-priced apartments.

The president of the nursing home and mayor of Larisa, Mr. K. Tzanakoulis has accepted the donation and set up a commission under Mr. P. Tsoumas in order to find out the exact condition of the property included in the will.

On his part, attorney Mr. George Ziazias, who has been part of the administration of the nursing home since he had founded it back in 1946, underlined that this is the biggest donation the institution has ever received. “This donation came at the best time, because we are facing serious problems with our operative costs” added Mr. Ziazias.

The donor is Ms. Chariklia Christodoulou-Trantou, who died last March at the age of 80. Two years before her death, Ms. Chariklia inherited her then deceased brother George Christodoulou-Trantou and another brother who had passed some years ago. Both of her brothers had been successful contractors in Larisa.

None of the three brothers had married or had had any children. Ms. Trantou lived in a self-owned apartment, leading a very deprived life, as her neighbors have claimed.

Her savings throughout the years became the current donation to the nursing home. Mrs. Trantou had also made an important donation to the Prophet Elias Church in Neraida, Larisa, while still alive.
