A GREAT MAN – A NATIONAL BENEFACTOR
Beginning his life from Homoris Nafpaktia, he passes through the Atlantic Ocean and he finally reaches New York.
All his life he strived for success with his mind to social sensitivity and a spirit of humane solidarity. Starting with nothing he goes through extreme difficulties and with hard every day work, makes a fortune.
Coming from a background gifted with humanitarian virtues, from very early, he felt the need to respond impulsively to his moral and humane debt, towards his struggling compatriots in Nafpaktos.
Therefore, he begins his beneficial work early in his life, which aims mainly at the protection and progress of the youth of Nafpaktos, the spiritual and cultural renaissance of Nafpaktia.
The “Papacharalampios Library”, the “Papacharalampio National Stadium”, the “Papacharalampios hall”, etc. are indiscriminate witnesses of his offers. That insightful, open and patriotic mind of Dimitrios Papacharalampous contributed to and realized these magnificent works. Works which decorate, serve even today the town of Nafpaktos, being a shelter to the community, especially to the young people who are willing to cultivate their spirit and body.
The generations who have come and are coming to Nafpaktos, have the obligation to owe respect and gratitude to that Great Compatriot, Dimitrios Papacharalampous. It is the least that we can offer compared to the great heritage he offered to us, especially in those tough years he lived on.
May his memory live forever.
