On Wednesday, August 4th, Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas authorized the opening of the AHEPA Emergency Relief fund in an effort to provide humanitarian assistance for the victims of Greece’s wildfires.
AHEPA members have mobilized in response to this call to action. As the wildfires in Greece
continue to burn, we have seen our chapters and members come together to help in any way possible and we are proud.
In 2007, AHEPA donated $250,000 worth of goods and an additional $250,000 in financial assistance to victims of Greece’s wildfires. Following Greece’s wildfires of 2018, AHEPA was able to raise 159,000€ to complete a burn unit at Evangelismos Hospital in Athens.
“The images and stories coming from Greece are terrifying,” Supreme President Kokotas said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all who have been affected by this tragedy. We are extremely grateful to Greece’s first responders and to all nations that have offered support and assistance. We will stand with Greece as we did in 2007, 2018, and during other times of great need.”
