The reception demonstrated clearly how our expatriates feel for and support what is happening in this country. Many of them are 3rd and 4th generation, but they understand what is happening here, and now.

Mrs. Efy Gianna (co-founder of the organization) pledged the continued support of the organization to our work in the coming year. Mrs. Gianna assured us that she will try in every way to communicate the message of support and solidarity to the Greek people from the entire Australian community.
