URGENT: Karmagawa Fundraiser to Help Greece, Turkey, and Algeria Wildfire Victims

Key Takeaways

  • Countries in the Mediterranean are experiencing the worst heat wave in decades.
  • Hundreds of wildfires have devastated Greece, Turkey, and Algeria.
  • Karmagawa’s ongoing fundraiser will help victims with food, medical supplies, water, and shelter.

Mediterranean Wildfires and Floods

Much of the Mediterranean is experiencing the worst heat wave in three decades. Dry conditions and strong winds fueled more than 150 wildfires in Greece, Turkey, Algeria, and now Sicily.

Greatest Ecological Disaster Greece Has Seen in Decades

In Greece, officials evacuated dozens of towns and villages. Firefighters from at least 15 countries battled to bring the fires under control. As I write, two major fires are still burning in the Peloponnese region.

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said the fires are “the greatest ecological disaster Greece has seen in decades.”

In Turkey, nine people have died with more than 800 injured. Tens of thousands of people from at least 34 villages have been evacuated. In Bodrum, boats evacuated 4,000 tourists and hotel staff.

Turkey was ill-equipped to fight the fires. Eight countries have sent firefighting planes. Two, including the U.S., have sent helicopters. More than 4,000 personnel are part of the firefighting efforts.

Turkey has also experienced deadly flash floods in July and August. Last week, floods along the Black Sea coast forced the evacuation of 1,700 people. Up to 330 villages have no electricity after floods damaged power lines.

Algeria: 65 Killed as Fires Spread

In Algeria, 65 people have died, including 28 soldiers deployed to assist firefighters. 22 people were arrested on suspicion of arson.

As of last Wednesday, 69 fires were still burning. They’ve destroyed olive trees and killed cattle and chickens. Some villagers attempted to hold the flames back using buckets and branches.
