Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis sent a letter of thanks to Prince Charles to express the gratitude of the Greek people following an undisclosed amount donated for fire victims by the successor to the British throne.
As reported recently by Greek City Times, the Prince of Wales made a donation to the Hellenic Red Cross to help those affected by the fires in the country of the birth of his late father.
“We are immensely grateful for His Royal Highness’ kind donation,” said Antonios Avgerinos, the President of the Hellenic Red Cross.
“It means a great deal to the dedicated staff of the HRC and to the people of Greece who we are helping.
“We are working hard to assist affected people during these extremely difficult times, with the wildfires now affecting over 70,000 people.
“We hold a great affection towards His Royal Highness given his close family links with the country, and the HRC will continue to work tirelessly for the people of Greece who have suffered with these unprecedented wildfires.”
The donations have helped the Hellenic Red Cross teams to fight the fires, provide first aid and assist in search and rescue activities.
