The amount of 100.000 euros will be donated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to an International Organization already operating in Haiti.

This aid is a contribution to addressing the humanitarian needs that have arisen since the recent earthquake that struck the country, as well as the hurricane that followed.

As stated in the announcement of the ministry, “with this symbolic move, Greece stands today next to the tried Haitian people and does not forget that Haiti was the first country in the world to recognize the independence of Greece, in 1822“.

It is noted that Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias has expressed his desire to visit Haiti as soon as possible when the epidemiological and political conditions allow.
