Further to the tragic events, GasLog has announced that it will make a €500 000 donation to the Lyreion orphanage, which is located on the outskirts of Mati. The orphanage suffered severe fire damage to its main buildings and property during the wildfires, including to vehicles that are used to transport children to and from school and farm the land. The company will purchase replacement vehicles directly, up to a total of €500 000, and donate them to the Lyreion.
The Lyreion is a non-profit charitable foundation founded in 1967, funded by private donations and administratively controlled by the Greek church. The foundation provides a home for orphaned children, raising them to adulthood and helping them integrate into society in order to achieve their full potential.
Paul Wogan, Chief Executive Officer of GasLog, stated, “On behalf of the Board, management and employees of GasLog, and as a company operating out of Greece, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to all those who have been impacted by this tragedy, as well as our support for the local community at this difficult time. We hope the company’s donation to the Lyreion will in some small way help mitigate the impact of the disaster on the children and assist the foundation in carrying on their admirable work.”
