Earthquake Relief Fund: Kefalonia Greece

$7,263 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 74 people in 49 months
On Sunday, January 26th, 2014, Kefalonia, a beautiful Greek island in the Ionian Sea, experienced a 6.1 magnitude earthquake that damaged homes and injured residents. Since then, the power earthquake triggered numerous aftershocks measuring over 4.0 magnitude. Thousands of panic driven families have evacuated their homes and have turned sprawling untouched building, cars, and cruise ships, into makeshift shelters.

One week later, on February 3rd, 2014, the western region of Kefalonia was faced with a second earthquake with a preliminary magnitude between 5.7 and 6.1 rectors. The devastating earthquake hit the island before dawn, sending frightened residents into the streets. Many resident of the island, especially in the Paliki region of Lixouri, Kefalonia, are left without a home, electricity, as well as clean and running water. Remaining homes and buildings were destroyed. Schools have been forced to shut down, and old age homes evacuated. Town ports and roads have been destroyed.

We are asking for a donation of any amount to help rebuild our beautiful Island.

With the exception of a 5% website administration fee, all of the donations will be going to a non-governmental organization created specifically to help earthquake damage in Kefalonia.


Thank You


Our goal to raise $20,000.00 would come out to 14800.56 Euro




Την Κυριακή , 26 Ιανουαρίου 2014 , η Κεφαλονιά , ένα όμορφο ελληνικό νησί στο Ιόνιο Πέλαγος , χτυπήθηκε από ένα σεισμό μεγέθους 6.1 ρίχτερ που κατέστρεψε σπίτια και τραυμάτισε κατοίκους. Έκτοτε, ο σεισμός προκάλεσε πολυάριθμους μετασεισμούς μεγέθους άνω των 4,0 ρίχτερ. Χιλιάδες πανικοβλημένες οικογένειες έχουν εκκενώσει τα σπίτια τους και έχουν μετατρέψει ανέγγιχτα κτίρια αυτοκίνητα και κρουαζιερόπλοια, σε πρόχειρα καταλύματα .




Μία εβδομάδα αργότερα , στις 3 Φεβρουαρίου 2014, η δυτική περιοχή της Κεφαλονιάς χτυπήθηκε από ένα δεύτερο σεισμό μεγέθους μεταξύ 5.7 και 6.1 ρίχτερ . Ο καταστροφικός σεισμός έπληξε το νησί πριν από την αυγή , στέλνοντας τους φοβισμένους κατοίκους στους δρόμους . Πολλοί κάτοικοι του νησιού , ιδιαίτερα στην περιοχή της Παλικής στο Ληξούρι , Κεφαλονιάς , έχουν μείνει χωρίς σπίτι , ηλεκτρικό ρεύμα , καθώς και καθαρό νερό . Αρκετά σπίτια και κτίρια καταστράφηκαν . Τα σχολεία έχουν αναγκαστεί να κλείσουν, και τα παλιά σπίτια έχουν εκκενωθεί . Τα λιμάνια και οι δρόμοι του νησιού έχουν υποστεί φοβερές ζημίες.


Ζητάμε δωρεά οποιουδήποτε ποσού που θα βοηθήσει στην ανοικοδόμηση του όμορφου νησιού μας. 

Με την εξαίρεση του τέλους διαχείρισης της ιστοσελίδας του 5%, όλες οι δωρεές θα πάνε σε μια μη κυβερνητική οργάνωση που δημιουργήθηκε ειδικά για να βοηθήσει στις ζημιές από τους σεισμούς στην Κεφαλονιά.
