Worldwide Greeks Support THI’s Wildfire Relief, Online Fundraising Breaks Records

ATHENS – Greeks worldwide have rallied to support The Hellenic Initiative (THI) Wildfire Relief Fund Campaign which has broken records for online fundraising.

THI is the world’s largest Greek Diaspora organization investing in the future of Greece through direct philanthropy and economic revitalization. 

Unprecedented extreme heat and dry conditions have fueled devastating wildfires which have destroyed thousands of acres of forest and hundreds of homes and businesses forcing mass evacuations. THI invites everyone to join them in supporting the firefighters and vetted NGOs working around the clock to provide assistance that is both effective and responsible.

According to THI, 100% of the funds raised will be used for this relief effort.

As of August 13, over $365,000 has been raised from 3,200 individual donors from around the globe, including many contributions from Diaspora Greeks living in the United States, Europe, South America, Africa and Asia and hundreds of contributions from caring philhellenes. 

The effort continues and those interested in helping may visit THI’s website at:
