His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America is pleased to announce that the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese (GOA) Earthquake Relief Fund for Türkiye and Syria has raised a total of $700,000, now ready for disbursement through a GOA collaboration with International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC).  

Launched in February 2023 following the devasting earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, the GOA Relief Fund comprises the generous contributions of parishes, faithful, and affiliated organizations, including a $250,000 donation from the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, Inc. and its local chapters. It is specifically designated to assist those displaced by the earthquakes in Türkiye, where an estimated 2.7 million people have lost their homes.
