Help those among us in need
Bank of Cyprus has partnered up with companies and members of the SupportCY network, part of its ongoing offer of help to those in need across Cyprus.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility and the promotion of corporate volunteerism, this Christmas Bank of Cyprus staff helped out those in need in various ways. For the 11th year running, the Bank's Limassol district administration provided support to the paediatric department of the Limassol general hospital, offering medical equipment. Accompanied by Santa Claus, Bank staff visited the paediatric department, handing out presents to children being treated in hospital.
Meanwhile staff working at the Bank's Card Centre offered presents to 100 children. The gifts were donated to the One Dream, One Wish association. Also, volunteers from Risk Management and Treasury organised fairs in a bid to provide support to the Pancyprian Volunteerism Coordinating Council and to the Sophia For Children foundation.
At the same time, the Bank along with other SupportCY partners offered essential items and equipment for the benefit of children and families. This was done through the Funraising foundation, the Pancyprian Organisation of Large Families in Nicosia and Paphos, and the Larnaca soup kitchen which daily provides meals to people in need. Lastly, supermarket coupons were purchased and distributed to needy schoolchildren.
Supporting those in need is among the priorities of SupportCY and of the Bank, confirming the value of such partnerships and mutual support. The companies/members of SupportCY taking part in these Christmas actions along with Bank of Cyprus, were: Ergo Home Group, Kotsovolos, Mangas Home Improvement, Smart Discount Shops and Paradisiotis.
