PRESS RELEASE 22 OCTOBER 2018
STELIOS PHILANTHROPIC FOUNDATION

78 APPLICATIONS HAVE ALREADY BEEN SUBMITTED FOR THE DIRECT FINANCIAL SUPPORT INITIATIVE THAT WILL GIVE 5,000 € TO EACH FAMILY WHO LOST A MEMBER FROM THE WILDFIRES OF EASTERN ATTICA .

WE ARE STILL RECEIVING APPLICATIONS UP UNTILL THE 2ND OF NOVEMBER


The process of receiving applications for the grant of direct personal allowances to the closest relatives of our fellow human beings that were lost in July 2018 by the deadly fires in Eastern Attica continues until the 2nd of November.

A total of 78 applications have so far been submitted.
The total amount of the donation is estimated to amount to € 500,000.

In particular, a lump-sum of € 5,000 will be given by a bank deposit to the nearest or up to the second-tier relative , of any deceased person.
The order of priority begins with the spouse (including those who have a cohabitation agreement), followed by the oldest child - if this is over 18 years old and has a bank account - whereas if there is no adult child, the sum will be given to the father of the deceased. If this is not feasible, then financial support will be given to the mother. If there is no living first-degree relative, the allowance will be paid to his or her oldest sister or brother (second-degree affinity).
The amount of € 5,000 will be given to the closest relative based on the above mentioned order and will not be divisible.
This series has been chosen for practical reasons, but the Foundation's hope is that there will be a fair distribution of the amount among the relatives to benefit the whole family. If the same person is the closest relative to more than one of the deceased, then that person will receive all the amounts corresponding to him.
Regarding the procedure, applications will be submitted in writing and in person by the closest relative during all working days (Monday to Friday) from 08:00 to 12:00 on the second floor of the Foundation , located in the center of Athens (Euripidou 10, Athens, PC 105 59). In addition, you can contact mr . Babis Roussos, Kostas Seretis and Panagiotis Kostarakis by phone at +30 210 3226797 during these hours for more information . In that same building there is the daily distribution of Food from the Heart, from 07:30 to 12:00 .
The submission process will be running from Friday the 5th of October to Friday the 2nd of November. Payments will be made by bank transfer to a bank account of the closest relative and will be completed by the end of November for all those who will have successfully completed and submitted their application .
Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou said: "I have been monitoring all the donations and announcements that were made from the government, other institutions and companies for the past 3 months. We gave 100,000 euros to the Red Cross just a few hours after the fire. Now is the time for a more immediate and tangible move for the people who lost their relatives. It is the only loss that is can never be replaced with anything ".
THE PROCEDURE :
The Foundation has appointed a three-member committee that will audit each applications and the supporting documents. The final decision for each beneficiary will be taken by Stelios Haji-Ioannou himself after the whole procedure is completed.
If the closest relative can not attend in person, then he / she may be represented only by another close relative with a written attorney to complete the application.
However, the payment will still be made to the closest relative, as defined above. The application must be accompanied by the necessary supporting documents, such as the death certificate and the family status certificate. The names of the deceased will be cross – checked using the published list of names by the General Secretariat for Civil Protection.
For the sake of transparency, the names of the beneficiaries will be published on our website (after their written consent to the application) . The presentation of the proof of payment of the € 10,000 benefit granted by the Greek State , based on the published law (Government Gazette A 138 / 26.07.2018), will accelerate our payment to the beneficiary . Under the same law it is stipulated that donations of this type are not subject to donation tax for the beneficiaries.


78 ΑΙΤΗΣΕΙΣ ΕΧΟΥΝ ΕΙΔΗ ΥΠΟΒΛΗΘΕΙ ΓΙΑ ΤΗΝ
ΑΜΕΣΗ ΟΙΚΟΝΟΜΙΚΗ ΕΝΙΣΧΥΣΗ ΥΨΟΥΣ 5.000 € ΓΙΑ ΚΑΘΕ ΟΙΚΟΓΕΝΕΙΑ ΘΑΝΟΝΤΟΣ ΑΠΟ ΤΙΣ ΠΥΡΚΑΓΙΕΣ ΤΗΣ ΑΝΑΤΟΛΙΚΗΣ ΑΤΤΙΚΗΣ

Η ΔΙΑΔΙΚΑΣΙΑ ΥΠΟΒΟΛΗΣ ΑΙΤΗΣΕΩΝ ΣΥΝΕΧΙΖΕΤΑΙ ΕΩΣ ΤΙΣ 2 ΝΟΕΜΒΡΙΟΥ
Συνεχίζεται έως τις 2 Νοεμβρίου, από το Φιλανθρωπικό Ίδρυμα Στέλιος Χατζηιωάννου, η διαδικασία αιτήσεων για τη χορηγία άμεσων προσωπικών επιδομάτων στους κοντινότερους συγγενείς των συνανθρώπων μας που χάθηκαν άδικα τον Ιούλιο του 2018 από τις φονικές πυρκαγιές στην Ανατολική Αττική. Μέχρι στιγμής έχουν υποβληθεί συνολικά 78 αιτήσεις. Το συνολικό ποσό της δωρεάς υπολογίζεται ότι θα ανέλθει σε 500.000 €.
Συγκεκριμένα, θα δοθεί εφάπαξ οικονομική βοήθεια ύψους 5.000 € με τραπεζική κατάθεση στο λογαριασμό του κοντινότερου, μέχρι δευτέρου βαθμού εν ζωή, συγγενή του κάθε θανόντα.
Η σειρά προτεραιότητας ξεκινά με τον / τη σύζυγο (συμπεριλαμβάνονται και τα άτομα που έχουν συνάψει σύμφωνο συμβίωσης), έπειτα ακολουθεί το γηραιότερο τέκνο –εάν αυτό είναι άνω των 18 ετών και διαθέτει λογαριασμό τραπέζης– ενώ, αν δεν υπάρχει ενήλικο τέκνο, τότε η ενίσχυση θα δοθεί στον πατέρα του θανόντος. Αν ούτε αυτό είναι εφικτό, τότε η οικονομική ενίσχυση θα δοθεί στη μητέρα. Σε περίπτωση που δεν υπάρχει εν ζωή ενήλικας συγγενής πρώτου βαθμού, τότε το επίδομα θα δοθεί στο γηραιότερο αδελφό ή αδελφή του θανόντα (συγγένεια δευτέρου βαθμού).
Το ποσό των 5.000 € θα δίνεται ακέραιο στον κοντινότερο συγγενή με βάση την παραπάνω αναφερόμενη σειρά και δεν θα μπορεί να διαιρεθεί. Η συγκεκριμένη σειρά έχει οριστεί για πρακτικούς λόγους, ωστόσο ελπίδα του Ιδρύματος είναι η δίκαιη κατανομή του ποσού μεταξύ των συγγενών ώστε να επωφεληθεί όλη η οικογένεια. Εάν το ίδιο άτομο είναι ο κοντινότερος συγγενής παραπάνω του ενός θανόντα, τότε το άτομο αυτό θα λάβει όλα τα ποσά που του αντιστοιχούν.
Αναφορικά με τη διαδικασία, η υποβολή των αιτήσεων θα γίνεται εγγράφως και αυτοπροσώπως από τον κοντινότερο συγγενή κατά τις εργάσιμες ημέρες (Δευτέρα έως και Παρασκευή), ώρες 08:00 με 12:00, στο δεύτερο όροφο του Ιδρύματος, που βρίσκεται στο κέντρο της Αθήνας (Ευριπίδου 10, Αθήνα, Τ.Κ. 105 59). Επιπλέον, μπορείτε να επικοινωνείτε με τους κ.κ. Μπάμπη Ρούσσο, Κωνσταντίνο Σερέτη και Παναγιώτη Κωσταράκη τηλεφωνικά στο 210 3226797 τις ίδιες ώρες για περισσότερες πληροφορίες. Στο ίδιο κτήριο γίνεται η ημερήσια διανομή του Φαγητού από Καρδιάς, ώρες 07:30 –12:00.
Η διαδικασία υποβολής των αιτήσεων θα διαρκέσει από την Παρασκευή 5 Οκτωβρίου έως και την Παρασκευή 2 Νοεμβρίου. Οι πληρωμές θα γίνουν με τραπεζική μεταφορά σε λογαριασμό τραπέζης του κοντινότερου συγγενή και θα έχουν ολοκληρωθεί μέχρι το τέλος Νοεμβρίου, γι’ αυτούς που έχουν συμπληρώσει την αίτηση επιτυχώς.
Ο κ. Στέλιος Χατζηιωάννου δήλωσε σχετικά: «Παρακολουθώ τους τελευταίους 3 μήνες τις δωρεές και τις ανακοινώσεις από πλευράς της κυβέρνησης, ιδρυμάτων και εταιρειών. Εμείς δώσαμε 100.000 ευρώ στον Ερυθρό Σταυρό λίγες μόλις ώρες μετά τη φωτιά. Τώρα ήρθε η ώρα για μια πιο άμεση και απτή κίνηση για τους ανθρώπους που έχασαν τους συγγενείς τους. Είναι η μόνη απώλεια που δεν αναπληρώνεται με τίποτα».
ΔΙΑΔΙΚΑΣΤΙΚΑ:
Το Ίδρυμα έχει ορίσει μία τριμελή επιτροπή για τη διαδικασία των αιτήσεων και του ελέγχου των δικαιολογητικών. Η τελική απόφαση για τον/τη δικαιούχο θα ληφθεί από τον ίδιο το Στέλιο Χατζηιωάννου μετά την ολοκλήρωση της διαδικασίας. Εάν ο κοντινότερος συγγενής δεν δύναται να παρευρεθεί αυτοπροσώπως, τότε μπορεί να εκπροσωπηθεί μόνο από κάποιο άλλο κοντινό συγγενή με γραπτό πληρεξούσιο για τη συμπλήρωση της αίτησης. Η πληρωμή όμως και πάλι θα γίνει στον κοντινότερο συγγενή, όπως ορίζεται παραπάνω. Η αίτηση θα πρέπει να συνοδεύεται από τα απαραίτητα δικαιολογητικά, που είναι το πιστοποιητικό θανάτου καθώς και το πιστοποιητικό οικογενειακής κατάστασης. Τα ονόματα των θανόντων θα διασταυρώνονται με βάση τη δημοσιευμένη λίστα της Γενικής Γραμματείας Πολιτικής Προστασίας. Για λόγους διαφάνειας θα δημοσιευθούν στην ιστοσελίδα μας www.stelios.org/firesingreece τα ονοματεπώνυμα των δικαιούχων (μετά την γραπτή τους συγκατάθεση στην αίτηση) καθώς και τα ονόματα των θανόντων για λογαριασμό των οποίων έλαβαν το επίδομα. Επίσπευση της καταβολής της οικονομικής ενίσχυσης θα επιφέρει η προσκόμιση της απόδειξης πληρωμής του επιδόματος των 10.000 € που δίνεται από το Δημόσιο, με βάση των δημοσιευμένο νόμο του ελληνικού κράτους (ΦΕΚ Α ' 138/26.07.2018). Με βάση τον ίδιο νόμο ορίζεται ότι οι δωρεές αυτού του τύπου δεν υπόκεινται σε φόρο δωρεάς για τους δικαιούχους.
