In moments like these, there is not much to say, only much to do.
Faced with the pressing need to bring relief to the people and families who fell victim to the catastrophic wildfires that struck Western and Eastern Attica, the Onassis Foundation declares itself “present” in the national solidarity effort and announces its decision to support the Greek State with €5,000,000.
The support will be provided to cover urgent needs in collaboration with the Greek State and enhance its effort to rebuild the affected areas and, moreover, to address the issue of fires in our country.
The Onassis Foundation expresses its profound sorrow for the victims of the deadly fire and its full support to their families and loved ones. #onassis #onassisfoundation
