Greeks planted 1,000 trees in areas plagued by the Greek wildfires in 2018.

The trees were planted in collaboration with We4all at Mati and Neo Voutsas by volunteers, students and artists.

The group also sent a message of solidarity to victims of Australia’s bushfires.

A message was posted on social media:

The message urged Australians to stay strong. “Seventeen months ago, everything was burned to the ground here. We lost thousands of our trees, our homes, our stores but worst of all we lost 102 of our beloved people,” states the message, that goes on to show solidarity with the people facing the “never-ending nightmare” of fires.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
