An initial amount of 350,000 US dollars has been secured towards the reconstruction of the fire-stricken Balikli Greek Hospital in Istanbul, Archbishop Elpidophoros of America told Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew at the Phanar on Tuesday.

Funds have been donated by the Greek-American community, “who responded immediately to our call,” as Elpidophoros tweeted, and by the Archbishopric itself, which expects more funds to come in privately.

The Greek Orthodox Archbishop, who arrived in Istanbul on Tuesday for the third pilgrimage organized by Archdiocese of America in celebration of the 100th anniversary of its founding, will be visiting Balikli in coming days.

The fire broke out on August 4 and destroyed the roof of the philantropic institution’s historic building. Elderly residents and  patients had been evacuated and no injuries were reported.
