April 15, 2020 – Limassol, Cyprus – Trusted Forex broker EverFX and FinTech incubator Axios Holding, join forces in helping families from Limassol and Nicosia, affected by the COVID-19 crisis and the economic turmoil it has caused.
The Cyprus-based fintech brands and long-time strategic partners will help close to 600 families. Each family will receive a €50 coupon that will be redeemable at Alphamega supermarkets for any products except tobacco and alcohol. The families eligible for the coupons will be selected from the Cyprus Red Cross Society and the assigned government authority for full transparency.
“We feel a strong obligation to help struggling families in Cyprus,– says George Karoullas, CEO of EverFX. – Thankfully, the nature of fintech business has allowed us to keep most of our employees working remotely, without any cuts to the salaries and benefits. That said, we are well aware that many people and businesses aren’t as lucky. Our international teams combine Cypriots and expats, yet all of us feel that Cyprus is our home, and we feel a strong obligation to give back to the community, especially as the Easter approaches.
None of this would have been possible without the professionalism and cooperation of Alphamega supermarkets, the local authorities and the Cyprus Red Cross Society. Not only did Alphamega supermarkets offer the platform for making this possible, but were kind enough to reinforce the initiative by adding a significant amount to the donation. We are truly thankful for their support”
Cyprus Red Cross Society have expressed their appreciation and gratitude as they help allocate the families in need in the statement saying: “The vision of the Red Cross movement has always been that organisations and individuals come together to help in the times of need, so the initiative of EverFX and Axios Holding is very close to our heart and vision! The donation to Cyprus Red Cross Society, Nicosia Branch, is more than welcome and we are happy to assist and contribute in identifying families who will benefit from this help.”
The initiative is timed perfectly for the Easter Holidays, where many people’s festive weekend may be overshadowed by financial struggle and the difficulty to provide festive meals for their families, in addition to the isolation and the limits in celebrating one of the year’s biggest holidays. Organisers hope for the initiative to relieve the burden of the economic crisis as most families are expected to redeem the coupons before Easter.
As the Cyprus government is also undertaking a massive effort to relieve the crisis, authorities welcome the initiatives from the private sector. “Limassol has grown into a truly diverse and cosmopolitan city. We celebrate holidays and enjoy carnivals together, but it is especially heartwarming when representatives of the private sector come together with the locals in the time of need. We have identified the families who will benefit from the initiative, and are thankful to EverFX and Axios Holding for the support” – said the Mayor of Limassol Nicos Nicolaides.
As EverFX and Axios Holding’s offices are located in Kato Polemidia, the Mayor of the Polemidia Municipality Nikos Anastasiou has expressed his gratitude for the donation. “In these trying times any help counts, and we welcome the thoughtful charity effort that will help families celebrate Easter, while truly bringing the community together, even as we remain apart to maintain social distancing”.
