For yet another year, Greek Australian businessman John Halikos, has purchased 300 lambs, which will be given to poor families across Kalymnos for Easter Sunday.

Sending many wishes and love from Darwin, Australia, the Greek compatriot who never forgets his homeland Kalymnos, especially around Easter time, has made sure that poor families on the island will be able to celebrate Greek Orthodox Easter with traditional lamb on the spit.

According to, Mr Halikos has bought over 300 lambs from a local butcher, which will be distributed directly to nursing homes and to homes where people can not afford to buy meat and other food to celebrate Easter, with a big feast.
