LEADERSHIP 100 PROVIDES $250,000
FOR VICTIMS OF GREEK FIRES THROUGH IOCC

 

Leadership 100 Chairman Argyris Vassiliou announced that the $200,000 approved by the Executive Committee of Leadership 100, along with an additional $50,000 raised from members, is being used by International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) for housing assistance and the relocation of victims of devastating fires in Greece. IOCC is the humanitarian relief and development agency of the Assembly of Orthodox Bishops.

IOCC has been addressing the needs of the victims of the fires in cooperation with Apostoli, the humanitarian organization of the Archdiocese of Athens. Priority for housing assistance is being given to unemployed and low-income families who are permanent residents of the affected areas in Eastern Attica. More than 1,000 homes and other buildings were damaged and destroyed.

Vassiliou said, “The Leadership 100 gift (which was approved on August 2, 2018 in response to the appeal made by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios) is already having an impact on the housing crisis suffered by so many of our Hellenes in Eastern Attica.  IOCC/Apostoli has been effective by working with the affected municipalities. Our individual Leadership 100 members have responded with great generosity, as they have always done in past humanitarian crises.”
