Eight days after the catastrophic fire in Eastern Attica, Rafina is trying to find its normal gait.

The supply of basic necessities continues in the OTE building, where the fire victims can be supplied, submitting an application and a protocol number from the City Hall. Volunteer car drivers can fill the vehicles with products for distribution upon request to City Hall. Children from the Hellenic Guiding Corps assist in the transport and classification of items. At the moment, they need brooms, buckets, mopsticks, detergents and cleaners (sponges, bleach). Also, three optical stores offer free eyeglasses to fire victims, while the Rafina Health Center conducts free ophthalmological examinations.

Food is also available to beneficiaries of the area, based on social criteria, in the municipal parking lot on Mandika Street. Tents have been set up there early in the morning to protect people and products from the strong sun. Beneficiaries, fire-affected or not, use the car park to place supplies (mainly packaged food, oranges and potatoes) directly in their vehicles. Each beneficiary receives his or her share of food, depending on the size of his or her family.

A few meters from the municipal parking lot, drivers see the Fire Brigade and the Police blocking their passage to the road leading to the port. The reason is the widening works of the Great Stream of Rafina, which started last Friday (27/7) and are expected to be completed within the week. A large Army excavator moves stones, soil, reeds, branches and any carried materials to the side, at a distance of approximately from the port to Marathonos Avenue, so that water can pass in case of heavy rain and not flood the stream.

Moreover, the environmental conditions for the boxing of the Grand Stream, recently issued by Minister Socrates Famellos, have provoked reactions from some residents. The latter, in a statement, state that “after the environmental impact in Eastern Attica, state and local authorities consider it absolutely urgent to deforest a total of 30 km of riparian vegetation and over 3.000 trees, turning one of the streams into a stormwater drain. to accept water from the burned basin ", they point out that" the minister signs a flood project with a basic philosophy of not demolishing arbitrarily ", while they warn that Rafina could be turned into a new Mandra if due to the burned forests more water comes down to the boxed natural stream.

At the same time, the fire-affected parents of the area have been informed since yesterday (30/7) that the operation is extended for the whole of August, both of the 2nd Kindergarten (daily 8: 00-14: 00) for the service of infants 2-5 years old, and of the Creative Employment Center "Limanaki", aimed at children 5-12 years old. So far, however, the response of families is small, as few children have registered within the first 24 hours. Registrations will remain open until Thursday (2/7). A similar picture is presented by the 1st Primary School of Rafina, which was to operate from 30/7 as another point of creative employment for primary school children, however this has not yet happened due to lack of demand and although several teachers have expressed interest, then from the call addressed by the Teachers' Federation.
