The Region of Attica is organizing an aid mission to the flood victims of Thessaly. According to a relevant announcement, by order of the Regional Governor Giorgos Patoulis, the transport of drinking water and basic necessities is already underway, while the collection of offers from citizens in each Regional Unit is being organized, in order to be transported by the Attica Region to the affected areas in short time.
