A ship carrying another consignment of humanitarian aid to the quake-stricken people of Türkiye will set sail on Friday from Patras in western Greece.

Deputy Foreign Minister Andreas Katsaniotis, who is coordinating the nationwide effort to collect and send humanitarian aid to Turkiye and Syria, was at Patras port on Friday morning.

The new consignment includes four containers with 50 tonnes of basic necessities.
“This aid is only a part of the humanitarian aid we are sending,” Katsaniotis said, adding that, as Greece had said from the first moment, “we want the aid to be dispatched to Türkiye in a coordinated manner, to the areas where it is needed.”

More humanitarian aid is to be sent from the port of Patras and from Athens, he said, with a large consignment from the Attica region to be sent by road from Athens on Saturday and more aid to be sent by road from northern Greece, while the remaining aid will go by ship from Patras.

On his part, the regional governor of Western Greece Nektarios Farmakis, in a statement from the port of Patras, underlined: “It’s very important that as a regional authority, as local government as a whole, we assisted the state’s initiative and that, chiefly, we assisted in the unbelievable chain of solidarity and the wave of support from Greek society.
