The Stelios Philanthropic Foundation on Friday donated €52,000 in grocery vouchers to the medical, paramedical, nursing and administrative staff of the Limassol general hospital for their work in battling the pandemic.
The foundation created by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, said it was donating €100,000 in grocery vouchers to nurses in Cyprus as token of gratitude for their daily fight against the coronavirus.
Around 1,300 health workers at the hospital are to receive a voucher worth €40 that can be redeemed at any Alphamega supermarket in Cyprus.
“In these difficult times which our country is facing, we must stand in solidarity with those who night and day are tirelessly making efforts to protect public health,” Sir Stelios said.
The supermarket chain itself will cover 10 per cent of the sponsorship while booklets will be available via the state health services (Okypy).
The delivery of the gift certificates was carried out by Nikos Mourkoyiannis – a member of the Board of the Stelios Foundation – and handed over to the executive director of the hospital Christos Nicolaou in the presence of Natasa Constantinidou, assistant marketing manager of Alphamega.
Last May, the Stelios Foundation donated €100,000 worth of grocery vouchers to nurses in Cyprus as token of gratitude for their work.
