Forest fires that scorched communities in the Western and Eastern Attica regions of Greece and caused the deaths of more than 90 people. This was the worst disaster in recent years, and for many of the affected, the worst disaster of their lives.
Red Cross was at the fires searching for victims, delivering first aid, and later, providing relief and support to survivors.
Our Greek Fires Appeal is now closed. Thanks to your generous donations we raised $23,000. Thank you for your support.
If you have raised money for this appeal and still need to bank it, please contact us on 1800 RED CROSS (1800 733 276) or email@example.com.
Funds raised by this appeal will support Red Cross in Greece to help:
- provide emergency relief and recovery assistance
- prevent future tragedies through disaster preparedness, risk reduction and early warning
- send specialist aid workers
- work in areas affected by the fires to strengthen local resilience.
