Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Do­na­tions from bak­ers in Thes­sa­loniki pro­duced more than half a ton of bread, cheese pies and other goods which were dis­patched to the area of Idomeni, near Greece’s bor­der with the For­mer Yu­goslav Re­pub­lic of Mace­do­nia, a busy cross­ing for mi­grants and refugees seek­ing to travel to Western and North­ern Europe. The goods were sent by truck to Red Cross vol­un­teers in Idomeni who have been help­ing the refugees over the past few weeks. The head of the as­so­ci­a­tion of Thes­sa­loniki bak­ers, Elsa Kouk­oumiera, told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency that the goal of gath­er­ing 500 kilo­grams of bread had been ex­ceeded.
