Hoteliers association Pasyxe will donate €100,000 to help the victims of the huge fire in Greece on July 23, an announcement said on Friday.
According to the statement, president the association Haris Loizides has written to Greek tourism minister Elena Kountoura and Greek hotel and tourism associations, expressing solidarity and informing them that the association will contribute €100,000 to support the victims via the Cyprus volunteer commission.
“As stated in the circular of the association to its members, it is a national obligation of all the professional bodies of the country, as of course of the citizens, to assist to the extent that everyone can, in order to relieve the devasted communities of Greece,” Pasyxe’s announcement said.
The volunteer commission is in charge of collecting money and items and together with NGO Hope for Children has launched the #StandByGreece campaign which has, inter alia, collected more than €100,000, mainly by organising a concert in Nicosia on Tuesday which thousands attended.
