The Foundation has also fully funded the renovation of the ground floor of a Children’s House in Nicosia which hosts young children under the care of the Social Services.
The ‘Yianis Christodoulou Foundation’ supported the first steps of the setting up of the SISTEMA CYPRUS through the purchase of string instruments to be used for the orchestra of the children and young people.
It also funded the purchase and installation of special outdoor tartan (multi-sport) flooring to cover the basket-ball court at the 3rd Kaimakli Primary School.
The very popular Cypriot-Greek singer Anna Vissi, who has appeared on the Eurovision stage is not new to charity work.
She has raised money for the support of Sophia Foundation for Children , a charity which takes care of children in Cyprus and Kenya, so that they can provide them with a decent living.
