Solidarity to refugees have shown the bakers of Thessaloniki, amassing pastries for refugees who flock to the buffer zone between Greece and FYROM, at Idomeni, waiting to cross to FYROM.

A representation of the Bakers’ Union of Thessaloniki “The Prophet Elijah” was for more than two hours in the White Tower at 3pm accompanied by two trucks loaded with pastries, before departing for Idomeni.

The initial target of 500 kg of pastries was exceeded, as stated to AMNA news agency the president of the Association, Elsa Koukoumeria, recalling that the products will be delivered to the Red Cross, which will distribute them.
