Hospitality to Russian fire victims

In the context of its social contribution, the Bank of Cyprus provided hospitality to Russian families affected by last summer’s fires in their home areas.

The aim and promise of the Bank of Cyprus are, inter alia, to listen to the problems of society in all countries in which it operates. This promise is being fulfilled by helping, even if it is only psychologically, these people who are trying to rebuild their life from the ruins and see their future with optimism.

During their visit, the fire-struck families had the opportunity to visit the Archbishopric and obtain the blessing of Archbishop Chrysostomos, as well as the Presidential Palace, where they were greeted by the First Lady Mrs. Elsi Christofia.

Mr. Andreas Eliades, Managing Director of the Bank of Cyprus Group who, together with Mr. Yiannis Kypris, Deputy Managing Director and Mr. Eugene Tutkevich, Executive Manager of Uniastrum Bank in Russia, accompanied the fire victims in their visits, after pointing out how significant it is to provide psychological support to the people whose lives were ruined, and that the Bank of Cyprus tries to support and help them see their future with optimism, added the following: «Besides, our guiding principle is to be useful to society in all countries in which we operate. The charitable feelings and the contribution of the Group to social affairs are well documented in the 112 years of operation of the Bank».

The families also visited schools which participate in the Bank of Cyprus’ OIKADE internet-based programme; a programme, which has managed to unite students of the Greek diaspora. During their visit, they were warmly greeted by students and teachers who had prepared a special artistic programme.

The Bank of Cyprus’ guests also visited the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, where they were guided around the areas of the Archaeological Museum of the George and Nefeli Giabra Pierides Collection (donated by Clio and Solon Triantafyllides) and the Museum of History of Cypriot Coinage.
