Cyprus: Anastasiades appeals to Cypriots for assistance to Lebanon

The President of the Republic of Cyprus appealed to the Cypriot citizens to assist in the fundraiser that was launched to help the people of Lebanon after the untold tragedy that struck Beirut.

Nicos Anastasiades states in his message:

“Aware of the drama experienced by the neighboring friendly people of Lebanon, as well as the urgent food needs, and taking into account the call for help of the friendly country, I appeal to all Cypriot citizens, companies and businesses to help, offering generously to the fundraiser that started in all the provinces of free Cyprus for the collection of specific types of food, with the organization and under the auspices of the Office of the Volunteer Commissioner.

I am certain that the offer of our people, who are aware of difficulties, having experienced tragic situations and who have always nurtured feelings of friendship and appreciation for the Lebanese people, but also sympathy for the ordeal they are going through at this time, will be immediate and generous»./ibna
