A fund for citizens who lost their homes in the fires that ravaged much of the country in August has amassed 151 million euros, according to former Foreign Minister Petros Molyviatis, who has supervised the repository.

“This is the product of the generosity of more than 88,000 of our fellow citizens who have donated between 10 euros and 15 million euros each,” Molyviatis told Skai Radio.

Of the savings, 100 million euros will go toward rebuilding burned homes, Molyviatis said, adding that the new houses will be built “according to specifications that, we hope, will make them better than those that were burned,” he added. The former minister stressed that “every last euro” will go toward aiding fire victims.
