Contribution to Society is a key aim for the International Business Community and thereafter CIBA. This year, we are supporting the Panos Evripithou Foundation, a charity organization dedicated to providing assistance to prematurely born babies.
A few details about the charity from the parents of Panos and their story…
“The need for the establishment of this foundation came out of our own experience with our sons who came into this world prematurely on May 19th, 2011. While we lost Christian just two days after he was born, our son Angelos came out of the N.I.C.U eight weeks later. However, it is the ordeal of our third son, Panos that really inspired the creation of Panos Foundation, which is dedicated to him. He was the smallest one of the three, weighing only 600g. Due to his pre-maturity, Panos spent his entire 14-month life in the loving care of the Doctors and Staff of Makarios Hospital, and, unfortunately, never had the chance to come home. He was the first baby in Cyprus to celebrate his 1st birthday in the N.I.C.U. Even though he was a fighter and overcame many of the challenges he faced in his brief life due to prematurity, he decided to leave on August 1st 2012 and join his brother Christian. During the time Panos spent in the Hospital, we had to live each day at a time and learn to expect the unexpected—to believe in miracles. This is what actually motivated us as parents to try to help other families in need in the memory of Panos”.
Mission of the Foundation.
The Panos Evripidou Foundation is dedicated to the improvement of the lives of premature children facing life-long challenges caused by prematurity after leaving the N.I.C.U. As a non-profit organization, the Foundation tries to transform donations into life-saving miracles and thus “put a smile into a soul” for a better future. The primary goal is to help and support the children’s families by providing them useful information on our website. Being better informed, parents will be more prepared to deal with their children’s situation. The foundation also provides financial assistance where required to enhance the physical, emotional, and social well-being of children and families in need.
Our Goal as CIBA
We want to support the new-borns in their continuous struggle for life and recovery leading to as normal a childhood as possible. The money collected is used for occupational therapies, physiotherapy, speech therapy and hydrotherapy and even surgeries where required overseas. Funds are distributed after treatment to over 100 families and their baby, which are supported by the foundation.
