May our gracious Lord and Saviour have mercy on the survivors and grant eternal rest in the kingdom of heaven to those who have perished.
The fires in Greece have been truly devastating and the loss of life is unbearable. The organization I am privileged to serve, The Hellenic Initiative, is on the ground as I write meeting with those whose lives have been so terribly affected. If you wish, you may donate at one of the links below and I promise you that we will get the aid to those who need it most, and report back on how all emergency funding was used. Tomorrow morning in Greece, our team will meet with the Mayor of Rafina and other parties to strategize our best response. If you can, please help and share this with others. Thanks….
