Petition Summary

The petitioner complains about situation in the Kefalonia island in the prefecture of the Ionian islands (Greece). In February 2014 the island was heavily affected by the earthquakes, which had a devastating effect. According to the petitioner, the municipality did not properly manage the allocation of funds to repair the damage after the earthquakes, and the town is very unfriendly to the disabled citizens and visitors. Disabled person on a wheelchair is unable to safely travel through the town. The petitioner is concerned that facilities in the town designed for the young disabled citizens and built with the EU funds are operating very badly: out of 12 toilets only few can be used. The petitioner asks the European Parliament for help to make infrastructure on the island friendly to disabled persons.
