This year, we celebrated the most important day of Christianity, Easter and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ in unprecedented times, with our churches closed and our bells silent. The pandemic and the spread of Covid-19 in Cyprus, forced all of us to follow the strict restrictive measures of the Government and the Ministry of Health and limit ourselves to our homes not being able to visit churches and stay close to our families and friends.
During this pandemic, we had a challenging Easter, which unfortunately for some people within our community, this had an enormously unfortunate impact in their lives.
AHEPA Cyprus District 27, as part of its social and charitable actions, immediately extended its reach to support families that were indeed affected by the pandemic, resulting to their economic discomfort.
Specifically, AHEPA Cyprus District 27, on the 17th of April, as represented by District Governor, Periklis G. Theodoridis and District Secretary Georgios Kallenos, met with father Marios Kallenos and the affected families at the parish of Saint Constantine and Helen in Idalion and offered, to five families, a total financial aid of €500. AHEPA District 27’s donation was handed over to father Marios Kallenos and was distributed respectively equally to each family in need.
Accepting the financial aid, father Marios Kallenos emphasized: “We would like to warmly thank AHEPA Cyprus for the donation of €500. The money was distributed in cheques of equal amounts of €100, helping poor families of the parish of Saint Constantine and Helen in Idalion, that were affected due to coronavirus”.
