My name is Νick Kaza and I have set up this campaign in response to the tragic aftermath of the Athens wildfires yesterday. As Greek who grew up in Athens, Greece but live in London, the devastating events in my hometown made me feel utterly useless being so far away and unable to volunteer in-person.
I am SO lucky that my friends and family are now all safe and accounted for, there were terrifying hours when we were not sure, as one of the biggest wildfires happened to be right in the heart of a place we call home. Others have not been so lucky. Hundreds are suffering from severe burn wounds and are in critical care. The deathcount keeps rising. The details are horrifying.
Greece is still in the midst of a deep financial crisis, and resources are massively limited to volunteer work and fundraising right now.
Please take a minute to consider if you can donate something, to this country and its people who open their doors to everyone in need, Every Single Time, during every humanitarian crisis, with no questions asked.If you can, please help me raise just a little something to send over to the Hellenic Red Cross and the Wildlife protection organisation Anima, so they can acquire the supplies they need to help the hundreds of victims who have lost everything.
If the monetary goal is reached, I will post a copy of the bank transfer to these organisations along with personal thank you’s to each and every one who contributes to this page on my social media.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this, and a very special thank you to anyone who is able to help me raise this amount.
Our collective thoughts to the families of all the victims,
