Hospital Care Visits Campaign in Collaboration with Friendship Circle for Children Across Cyprus
Andrey & Julia Dashin’s Foundation joins forces with Friendship Circle, a charity organization that carries out weekly hospital visits to children’s wards in different hospitals around Cyprus to brighten up the children’s day with some gifts and entertainers. The Foundation kindly sponsored the ‘Hospital Care Visits’ campaign for 2 months, which included transport, gifts and other expenses.
Julia Dashina commented on this collaboration:
“It’s a privilege for us to be in a position to offer hospitalized children across the island a reason to smile. We hope that with these gifts and entertainment featuring famous cartoon heroes, we could cheer the kids up a little and contribute to their quicker recovery.”
Friendship Circle was founded in Cyprus in 2008. Since then, Friendship Circle has been providing assistance and support to the families of children with special needs as well as to individuals and families struggling with addiction, isolation, and other crises. In addition to helping those in need, Friendship Circle empowers and enriches its network of volunteers, the majority of whom are teenagers, by enabling them to reap the vast rewards of giving for themselves. Friendship Circle consists of five parts – volunteers, children, parents, staff, and supporters. The true beauty of the Circle is how all of the elements link together to form a seamless community of friendship.
