Planting of olive trees in the area of Ancient Olympia

The area of Ancient Olympia is a cultural heritage location of global historical interest.

In August 2021, the devastating fires that broke out affected the area’s natural wealth and the local community. With a heightened sense of responsibility towards the environment, Bodossaki Foundation took active part in The Arete Fund’s international initiative for the planting of thousands of olive trees, thus helping restore a part of the fires’ destructive effects.
