Our area’s support to the fire victims

This year we experienced a huge disaster in a large part of Greece and for a period of time that seemed endless. Forests, animals, people and settlements have suffered such damage that it will be very difficult for them to recover. We were lucky and we weren’t directly touched by all of this. We did not lose our homes, we did not mourn, we did not experience any loss. Katheti considered it very important to help our area contribute to the alleviation of the devastating fires victim’s pain. So, in cooperation with the Municipality of Poros, we organized a collection of essentials for the people, but also the animals, affected by the fires. Our area’s support to the fire victims was significant and it is time for we reviewed what we have jointly achieved. 

Together we can make it! 

The collection of basic necessities took place at Katheti’s exhibition space οn Poros, at Sail Sushi Cocktail Bar, at the event hall of Poros High School, at the Social Grocery of Poros and at Katheti’s space in Galatas. During the collection days, almost 300 of our fellow citizens brought over 300 bags/boxes of food, juices, water, clothing, medicines, personal hygiene items, as well as 120 kilos of animal feed. 

The supplies collected on Poros left by a Municipality truck for Gortynia. The supplies collected in Galatas, thanks to the huge response of our fellow citizens, did not fit in the truck. They were transported by Speedex, which offered the transportation of essentials to the affected areas that needed them most free of charge.  

Katheti made the call and coordinated, in collaboration with the Municipality of Poros, the collection of essentials, but without your own touching offer of help we would achieve very little. But together we can make it! That’s why we feel the need to say a big thank you again for your response!  

Our area’s support to the fire victims showed the humanity and empathy of our small community. A community that lives in a green area and has experienced in the past the destruction brought by fire. We could very easily be in the shoes of these people. This year, we dodged the disaster locally. But the only way to stay safe is to prevent and safeguard our area. A task carried out by both the fire brigade and volunteer firefighters. We can reinforce the Voluntary Fire Unit of Poros with our presence and participation. Every volunteer counts and together we can make a difference!
