The Greek Orthodox Community of Northern Australian Inc (GOCNA), the Kalymnian Brotherhood, the Cyprus Community of NT and the Hellenic Macedonian Association have organized a fundraiser aimed at financially supporting the ‘Meals on Wheels’ program on the island of Kalymnos, Greece.
The initiative has already raised more than $70,000 and aims at reaching $100,000 by its completion tomorrow, according to Neos Kosmos.
President of GOCNA John Nicolakis told Neos Kosmos daily that the initiative was unanimously decided on by the members of the Greek Community after he told them of the current situation in the Greek Island.
With the Greek debt crisis further plaguing the people of the country, the fundraiser will enable the Kalymnian Archdiocese to continue its food programme providing humanitarian aid during these harsh times.
People have responded very positively to the call of the Community and have contributed to the fundraising effort with whatever they could.
