Weʼre raising £2,000 to help those and the families of those affected by the ravaging wildfires in the suburbs of Athens and Greater Attica.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Recently, a wildfire that broke out in the suburbs of Athens, Greece, grew out of control and quickly swept across the suburbs, claiming the lives of more than 100 people so far, including holidaymakers. The youngest victim identified was just 6 months of age. The wildfire is still NOT under control, leaving nothing but ashes, despair and collapsed households in its wake and the death toll is rising by the day. The local authorities are struggling to cope up with the high costs of first-aid materials, medical supervisions/interventions, rescuing operations, all intensively needed at such a short notice. That's why the people of Greece need YOUR help.
Wildfires are unfortunately common in the mainland of Greece. However, never before has one been so severe and deadly in the past, sending the whole country and local tourists into shock. So let's do whatever we can to support the brave fire fighters and rescuers who put their lives at stake to save other people's lives, and those injured by the fire. The funds will be used to provide clean water, food, oxygen masks, first-aid kits and temporary shelter.
PLEASE if you truly care donate whatever you can. ALL of the funds gathered will be distributed equally across the 3 authoriries (the mayors of those) that have been inflcited the most, including Mati. There is no such thing as a small amount of donation! Every little helps.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
