Columbia Beach Resort Cares
Our team on resort is committed to supporting both local and worldwide causes, assisting chosen charities with all important fundraising measures to help them continue the excellent work they do.
This month the Columbia Beach Resort team supported Friendship Circle with a financial donation towards its ‘Back to School’ endeavour. This initiative ensures local Cypriot children receive the important school supplies they need to aid learning and development. Funds donated to the campaign provide everything from stationary essentials such as paper, pencils, crayons and glue sticks, to children’s back packs and weather appropriate clothes and shoes. Aiming to build the self-esteem and school attendance of those most vulnerable in society the ‘Back to School’ campaign really does ensure that those children within disadvantaged communities attend school with the basic equipment they need to feel confident and engaged.
Friendship Circle is a Cyprus based charity that aids and supports the families of children with special needs as well as to those individuals and families struggling with addiction, isolation, and other crises. The funds donated to support this important campaign will transform the lives of so many children on the island and we are delighted to have extended a helping hand in preparing them for an exciting chapter of learning.
The resort is also supporting the UK Thalassemia Society this month with a prize donation to for its annual charity ball. Dedicated to raising awareness of this chronic, genetic disorder, the annual charity ball will raise funds for the provision of care, treatment and support for suffers, as well as further research into the cause of the condition.
Thalassaemia is the name given to a group of inherited conditions that affect haemoglobin levels within the blood. People with thalassaemia produce little to no haemoglobin, and sadly this chronic condition is passed from parents to children through mutated genes. The condition is most prevalent in Mediterranean cultures, along with Southeast Asian and African American ancestry, and we are delighted to show our support for those that have been affected in some way or other by the condition.
As a resort that truly believes in caring for all aspects of its locale – from ensuring its environmental impact is minimal to working with the local community and supporting charitable initiatives – Columbia Beach Resort’s ‘caring luxury’ stance ensures its operation flatters the locale and pays back to those that need additional support. Other endeavours close to our hearts span local wildlife conservation efforts including our Columbia Cat Care Project, turtle rehabilitation support and beach cleaning initiatives.
