Online Fundraising Effort for Flood Victims in Evia

September 3, 2020

ATHENS – Following the Evia flood disaster on August 10 which killed an 8-month-old baby and six adults, and left one person still missing, Eleni Angelopoulou organized a fundraising campaign via the online platform GoGetFunding.

Torrential rainfall hit the island from late Saturday night until Sunday morning, flooding homes and causing extensive damage to the infrastructure.

The goal of the online fundraising campaign is to “support the victims of Evia's affected areas (Bourtzi, Vasiliko, Politika, Psachna, etc.) in any possible way, temporarily bypassing bureaucracy in order to avoid delays and help families rebuild their lives, after this terrible natural disaster. Any financial support would be of great importance! Please don't forget to share with your friends,” according to the GoGetFunding page.

More information is available on the GoGetFunding page, search Flood Victims in Evia: https://gogetfunding.com/flood-victims-in-evia-%CF%83%CF%85%CE%BC%CE%BC%CE%B5%CF%84%CE%AD%CF%87%CE%BF%CF%85%CE%BC%CE%B5-%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B7%CE%BD-%CE%AC%CE%BC%CE%B5%CF%83%CE%B7-%CE%B1%CF%80%CE%BF%CE%BA%CE%B1%CF%84%CE%AC/#.XzELKBpcF3U.link.

On August 20, Angelopoulou noted that “as of today, our campaign continues in collaboration with Desmos, a Non-profit Foundation that serves as a hub between donors and beneficiary organizations since 2012.”

More information about Desmos is available online: https://www.desmos.org.

The fundraiser has raised just over 1,000 euro of its 100,000 euro goal with the deadline approaching in 20 days.
