Update: Lesvos Hospital Aid

Last Sunday’s the concert, our first event on this fundraising project, was well attended. From the Portland Mayor Ethan Strimling, City Councilor Nick Mavodones, to the founder of Partners for World Health, Elizabeth McLellan, and so many other Mainers at the USM School of Music, Gorham Maine. The Boston group Skordalia entertained the crowd with traditional music from the island of Lesvos.

The Hellenic Society of Maine (HSoM) has undertaken the project and is working with Partners for World Health, a non-profit organization based in South Portland, to obtain the medical supplies. HSoM will be responsible for all fees and expenses. Our goal is to raise $20,000 that will cover the expenses for the sending medical supplies to Lesvos.

With the proceeds of the concert and so many generous donations we raised approximately $13,000 of our goal. We still need your help. Please share our news from our website and our Facebook page with your friends and ask them to help as well. Keep sending your donations, Thank you.
