Charity drive for school supplies

‘Hope For Children’ UNCRC Policy Centre (HFC) in partnership with the Andrey & Julia Dashin Foundation has announced for the second year the launch of the campaign ‘Back to School with Hope’ to offer free school supplies to low-income families in Cyprus, as part of HFC’s programme ’Eradicate Child Poverty in Cyprus”.

The campaign will be ongoing from September 2014 to January 2015. Today, an event for collecting school items will take place at Kimonos Square in Larnaca, from 5pm until 8pm in order to receive as many school supplies as possible. The public can attend the event to drop new school items or used items in good condition. The event is organised in collaboration with the Larnaca Municipality and the information centre Europe Direct Larnaca.

If any institution wishes to get involved in the campaign ‘Eradicate Child Poverty in Cyprus’ and for more information and details about the collection points please contact ‘Hope For Children’ at 96 317873 or at 22 103234.
