September 11, 2020

ATHENS — With the extensive participation of companies in the private sector, which offered essential goods, food, medicine and medical supplies, as well as construction materials, the ferry IKARIA has been loaded with humanitarian aid sent by the Greek government to the Lebanese people and will set sail on Monday, September 14, from the Salamis Naval Station.

Hundreds of tons of products, contributed by at least 60 Greek companies, were gathered in less than 15 days after the foreign ministry announced the prime minister's initiative for Greece's continued solidarity with Lebanon during its quadruple, economic, political, refugee and social crisis. This consignment also includes products collected by the Lebanese Embassy in Greece, the Greek-Lebanese Association as well as social groups that showed an immediate interest in contributing.
