Parliament agreed by a majority on Wednesday that the government should accept a 2.3-million-euro donation from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to create a hostel for the relatives of cancer sufferers.

The hostel is to be built next to the Oncological Hospital Aghioi Anaragyroi in Kifissia, northern Athens. The hospital treats 9,700 patients a year, Parliament heard.
