Athens municipality collects foods and goods for Samos quake victims 1

To assist victims of the Samos earthquake that devastated the island on Friday, the Municipality of Athens has started collecting long-life foods and basic necessities, AMNA reported.

The collection point is at the municipality’s aid center located at Domokou 2 Street, opposite the Larissis train station in central Athens.

Foods and goods donations will be accepted there daily between the hours of 09:00 and 13:00 until Sunday November 6.

For those outside of Athens and still wanting to help the Samos quake victims, a GoFundMe fundraiser has been made.

Immediately, what is required is: tents, blankets, sleeping bags and other essentials that will help the displaced residents sleep at night as over 500 homes are currently deemed dangerous and they have had to evacuate.

Money raised on GoFundMe will buy these necessary items for the people of Samos.

Samos on Friday was devastated by an earthquake that destroyed several buildings, caused a tsunami that flooded the harbor area, and tragically killed two teenagers.
