The support initiative, in addition to provision of meals, extends to meeting the housing needs of the affected area and providing electronic equipment to schools.

The IOGR Group strengthens its moral and material support to the long-suffering residents of Arkalochori of the Municipality of Minos Pediados in Crete who were affected by the catastrophic earthquake back in September.

The feeding program recently announced by the IOGR Group is already in progress by providing 1000 meals per day and for the next five months to all earthquake victims.

In addition, by decision of the Group’s CEO Mr. Ioannis Grylos, the IOGR Group further strengthens its efforts for support towards the victims. Specifically, it undertakes to cover the recurrent costs of housing them in units /temporary housing accommodation, while it proceeded to the purchase of electronic equipment for the smooth operation of schools (Middle and High School of Arkalochori).

This is the way the IOGR Group chose to express its solidarity with the people directly affected, but also with the wider local community of Arkalochori that is being tested.

As underlined by Mr. Ioannis Grylos, CEO of IOGR Group: "From the first moment the magnitude of the disaster was common language, we are on the side of our compatriots, ready to respond to planned and emergency needs that arise. We are actively participating in the overall effort so that Arkalochori and its inhabitants stand on their feet stronger than ever “.
