HCDCP staff union appeals for volunteers to help those affected by Attica fires

A call for volunteers to help those affected by the Attica fires was issued on Wednesday by Hellenic Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (HCDCP) staff union.

In an announcement, the union noted the need to set up a network of volunteers with every kind of expertise and urged any citizen wishing to volunteer his or her services to either contact the union at Agrafon 3-5 in Marousi to provide his or her details or to send a message to the e-mail somatiosekeel@gmail.com.

Lists of volunteers will be drawn up and sent to the Rafina municipality, the union said, while noting that requirements for essentials such as food, medicine and clothing have currently been met. It also referred to a “touching response” by ordinary citizens and businesses to its call for donations, who filled 10 truck loads of basic essentials that were transported with the assistance of the Central Union of Municipalities of Greece (KEDE), the Athens Archepiscopate, private transport companies and volunteer networks.
