EuroCharity supports on-line ‘I help Greece’ ( initiative

73 human lives and 2,5 million square meters of land turned to ashes are the casualties of this summer’s 6.000 fires.

– The fires in the Peloponnese and on Evia have caused 63 deaths and a great deal of injuries, while the number of missing people still remains unknown.
– 1.5 million square metres of land have been burnt in the Peloponnese alone, according to conservative estimations, while hundreds of houses have been burnt to the ground and local economies have collapsed.
– Previous fires in Ahaia, Rethymnon, Larisa and Evia resulted to 10 deaths.
– Massive fires in Parnitha, Grammos, and Egialia have burnt a hundred thousand square metres of agricultural and forest land. Pilio, Crete, Skiathos, Kefallonia, Korinthia, Pieria, Kozani, Fthiotida and Kilkis have also been affected by — and severely suffered from — fires.

We should not remain simply spectators of the disaster!

The victims need hands-on solidarity from everyone.

Any contribution made by each of us is valuable, irrespective of the nature or amount of financial support we offer.
