Adopt a family this Christmas campaign

Final Flyer Xmas 2019

The launch of the annual campaign to support vulnerable families ‘Adopt a family for Christmas’ was announced by the Pancyprian Volunteerism Coordinating Council on Wednesday.

“The aim of the campaign is to leave no family and no child without the basics which help them feel the joy of Christmas,” chairman of the council Elias Demetriou noted.

“This Christmas will be different for everyone, especially for vulnerable families, due to the Covid-19 pandemic period we are going through. Let us not forget our fellow human beings who need our help and let us support vulnerable families by spreading the joy of the birth of Christ. This Christmas, we ask you too to ‘adopt’ a family!”

The organisation is looking for gift vouchers from supermarkets and shops, food items, gifts for children and any other items which may bring joy to families at Christmas.

The collection period is between mid-November and mid-December.

The campaign is running for the seventh consecutive year. In 2019, more than 850 families were offered Christmas packages by the council with the help of individuals, families, municipalities, communities, businesses, education institutions, NGOs and others.
