Today: Ukraine Appeal at Andromeda- Kosta’s personnel background narrative


Panagis and Alexandra in Corfu on the march for peace and the cessation of war

* Because many people ask how the aid will arrive in Ukraine, I inform the people that LYKOUDIS Transportation will transport all the aid that will be collected for free and then the Red Cross will undertake to promote them. The participation is very satisfactory and proves the greatness of humanity of all nationalities who are residents of Cephalonia.

Finally, the company copyland creations created and printed Free stickers that will be placed on the help boxes.

The bells of war rang far away from us, but at the same time so close to us.

All of us, more or less, will know a Ukrainian or a Russian, either because he was on holiday on our island or, most likely, who came as an immigrant and now lives among us with their family. The citizens of the two countries are living a drama for different reasons. The citizens of Ukraine are in a more difficult position, since their country is being bombed everywhere, resulting in the destruction of their property, but more importantly the loss of hundreds of lives.

   On the first day of the war, I pick up the standard morning phone in Corfu, my teenage son, and he tells me “Dad, they will make me Russian now”. I realized after 15 years that he is also half Ukrainian. I took a few seconds to recover and tried to reassure him. I did not know what to say to him. In 5 words he described to me one of the truths of this war. I would not consider myself a worthy father and human being if I did not try to help my child’s second homeland, his mother’s homeland, who, although an immigrant in our country, has helped a lot of people wherever they are. 

Yes, although an immigrant she has helped and is helping many Greeks and for me personally she is one of the most special and glamorous people I have ever met. A while ago he called me and asked me to help in food, clothing and especially medicines . He described to me harsh images of children and adults who have been mutilated, who have lost their homes, families who have been separated and many more bad things caused by the war. It is still a heavy winter in Ukraine. 

Those of you who were lucky enough to meet her either from her passage to the villages of Livathos or to the hospital when she was on duty, are Kouliasa Larisa-Alexandra. A doctor by profession, she does what she has sworn to Hippocrates. To help fellow human beings. Because she now lives in Corfu, she asks through me, to help her compatriots and our fellow human beings, each of them as she can, with food, clothing and above all medicines.

To begin with I placed an order at the pharmacy of my village in Vlachata to buy medicines worth 300 euros. It’s the least I could do. I am waiting for your response, regardless of nationality, religion and ideas about who is to blame for starting this war. Anyone who can help can email me at  or call me at6972287830. The goal is to move immediately and send help as quickly as possible and save as many human lives as possible. 

Alexandra met with the Governor Mrs. Kratsa and other bodies in Corfu and everyone was immediately interested and promised to help. I appeal to the Church of Kefalonia, to all the Municipalities of our island, to the Medical and Pharmaceutical Association and to each one individually to participate in this effort. 

On Sunday, March 6, 2022 I will be in Andromeda from 9.30 am to 3.00 pm and from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm to receive your help. Anyone who wants to participate more actively, please contact me. Anyone who wants to offer their space (from Lixouri, Sami, Poros, Agia Efimia, Argostoli) to collect help and to reduce the distances, also to contact me to be a new information to the people who want to help. Finally, Anatoli can use his vehicle to receive humanitarian aid from anywhere he needs if someone does not have the ability to transport it. His phone number is 6944907115. Thank you very much.

Yours sincerely,

Minetos Costas
