The Hellenic Initiative has launched a fundraising campaign 'THI COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund', aimed at raising donations from Greeks and Philhellenes of the Diaspora to support community-based organizations, entrepreneurs and the Greek public health system.
“Through the generous contributions of our supporters, we will be able to assist healthcare units and support vulnerable people who are facing severe difficulties and struggles in coping with this stressful period," George P. Stamas, THI Board President said.
Funds will support local medical practitioners, people with weak immune systems, the elderly, individuals and families suffering from mental health issues and struggling entrepreneurs.
THI’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund expands on THI’s local knowledge to address the short and long term needs created by the coronavirus crisis. Since its inception, THI has deployed over $15.5 million in financial aid supporting NGOs and entrepreneurs in Greece.
