In July 2012, GAIA launched their own website in Greek.
PsM posts a regular monthly report on GAIA activities.
GAIA activities are not confined to firefighting. They are involved in many local environmental activities and projects, including cave and mountain rescue, planting trees, removing weeds and clearing roads, recording stone paths, protecting wildlife and recycling. They are also on call to assist in dealing with road accidents and medical emergencies.
The voluntary group GAIA was established in 2000 by Dr Orfanidis, and since 2008 has been contributing to the protection of the wider area with fire-fighting vehicles and volunteer firefighters.
Since 2010 Gaia has operated under new rules, but continues to be entirely voluntary and NON-political. Perhaps you would like to help by making a donation or becoming a member of GAIA? Membership costs € 25 for a year.
In additon to cash donations, donations of items (especially those on the 'wish list') are always welcome. If you are not in Mani, you can make a direct transfer to the Gaia account at Piraeus Bank.
