Home destroyed in Athens fire

Dear friends,
 
This fund is set up to help our family friend Giorgos Papageorgiou reconstruct part of his life after losing everything he owned on July 23rd in the devastating fire of Mati, the beautiful coastal suburb of Athens. Giorgos is a young man who works several jobs for minimal wages and had a home and a rental property that he inherited from his deceased parents.  Both houses were burn to the ground during the fire and left him homeless. Giorgos narrowly escaped that night by jumping in the sea after a car accident that left him bleeding on the head and floated in the water for 6 hours helping others around him, while waiting for the fire to subside or be rescued.  He now lives with friends as a guest, he has no means of restoring his home and help from the Greek government is slow coming and substantially inadequate. He will need a minimum of 20,000 euro to repair his house and make it habitable again.  This fund is just a means of getting him started.

Thank you.
