Fundraiser to restore Kalavasos graveyard

Two men living in New York have started a fundraising campaign to help repair the damage done at the cemetery of the village of Kalavasos last week.

“My son Jason and I made a GoFundMe page to raise money for the victims of that horrible incident at the Kalavasos village cemetery,” Denis Evangelou said, adding that they hope to “raise the funds to help these people to rebuild and repair their loss.”

Evangelou said his mother and many friends and relatives live in the village.

People in Kalavasos were shocked and outraged when they discovered the desecration of 18 graves on Friday.

Fourteen of the graves were damaged and four had satanic symbols and swastikas sprayed on them.

Candles were also used during the destruction, pointing to a black magic ceremony.

It is believed that the headstones were smashed with hoes, and some residents think the desecration was the work of Satan worshippers due to the symbols along with the number six which were drawn on most of the graves.
