In the small village of Vrissa, its Mayor, Spyros Gallinos, has been quoted saying that the village looked as if it has been “flattened by bombs”. At a time when Greece is still suffering economic hardships and struggling to cope with a growing refugee crisis. The Greek people, now more than ever, need the world to look deep into its heart and come to the aid of the birthplace of democracy and western values.
This is why the American Hellenic Council is launching the #PrayForLesbos campaign to raise funds to help those Greeks in need. All donations will be hand delivered by AHC directly to relief agencies on the ground in Lesbos.
