How can you help the people affected by Athens wildfires?

There are a lot of requests by people living abroad who want to donate for the people affected by the wildfires in Athens. Below is a list of  public and other institutions where you can make a donation.

The list was complied by a team of Greeks who have also double checked the accounts and the IBNs, so that the money indeed goes to the municipalities/organizations etc and not to some scum.

These are special bank accounts extra set up for donations for the people affected by the wildfires.
