Over 600 families per week need support from food banks in Larnaca, city councillor Elia Elia said Friday after receiving a €2,000 donation from Hellenic Bank, Pancyprian Insurance and Hellenic Alico.
“The economic crisis continues, unemployment worsens and there are rising numbers of poor citizens. We appeal to all companies and organisations to offer what they can because even the smallest contribution will help people in need of support, especially these days coming up to Easter,” the councillor said according to the Cyprus News Agency.
He expressed his thanks to the organisations and said it was in great need of the help. District branch manager, Christakis Christoforou thanked all staff of Hellenic Group for their contributions and congratulated the councillor and volunteers who worked towards the success of the food bank.
