The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America announces the distribution of more than $1 million to aid those affected by the catastrophic fires in Greece this past summer. Under the leadership of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, a delegation, consisting of His Grace Bishop Apostolos of Medeia, Treasurer of the Archdiocesan Council Elaine Allen, and the 2nd Vice President of the National Philoptochos Ms. Anita Kartalopoulos, is currently visiting the affected areas to determine the best way to help. The delegation is working with International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) in the United States and its representatives in Greece.
