Various actions are implemented each year, such as organized group blood donations, the provision of financial support to charity foundations, the collection of foodstuff and clothing for the population in need, the support of vulnerable groups, participation in awareness campaigns and charity events, as well as actions for the protection of the environment, tree planting and the welfare of stray animals.
CySEC’s Chairman, Dr. George Theocharides, referring to the honorary distinction, stated: “We thank the Pancyprian Volunteerism Coordinative Council for this great honour. Social responsibility is an integral part of our Organisation’s culture and of its people. At CySEC, we feel immense joy to help provide support to vulnerable groups.
