Hellenic Red Cross

The Hellenic Red Cross is the Greek affiliate of the Red Cross which provides relief in times of crises and help when it is needed most.

Hellenic Red Cross received a grant from the Bain Capital Relief Fund in August 2021 as they were responding to the unprecedented wildfire season in Greece. The organization opened a dedicated bank account to support the fire victims and the wildlife displaced by the fires. They also provided search & rescue (including evacuating people by boat that were trapped on islands), shelter, food, basic health care, psychological support, and collected non-perishable food for the families impacted by the fires in Greece. Hellenic Red Cross volunteers also provided first aid to residents who suffered burns and to firefighters who experienced respiratory issues. Click here to learn more about Hellenic Red Cross.
