Nicosia Municipal Multipurpose Centre along with women’s groups and trade unions are today organising a charity event to collect food and money to support Agkaliazo food bank ahead of the holiday season.
According to director of the centre Roula Georgopoulou, volunteers from the centre and Agkaliazo charity will be collecting food from 10am to 7pm on Ledra Street in old Nicosia.
Products including Christmas decorations, cakes, plants, crafts, herbs, jams, fresh juices and waffles will also be on sale to support the cause.
Volunteers from various women’s organisations and trade unions will join the event at 3pm.
“We would like to extend a warm request for participation and offering, as the participating women’s organisations express their certainty that Cypriot citizens will contribute generously to help realise the target not to leave even one human being without food during the holiday season,” an announcement read.
‘Voice of Kyrenia’ choir will sing Christmas carols at 4pm.
“During the difficult times our country is facing, social solidarity, sensitivity and responsibility raise the cultural and human level of our people creating the basis for dealing with problems and overcoming the crisis”.
