Cyprus Concert Raises Over €100,000 for Fire Victims

More than €100,000 has so far been collected during the #StandByGreece campaign organised to help victims of last week’s devastating fire in Greece.

The campaign culminated in Tuesday’s concert at Nicosia’s municipal park where pop stars Anna Vissi and Antonis Remos performed together.

Thousands of people gathered on Tuesday for the concert to support the people in the eastern Attica region where the fire broke out on July 23.

Volunteer commissioner Yiannis Yiannakis announced the result on state radio at lunch on Wednesday.

“This is a big amount which can help a lot to restore the infrastructure for children in that area. It has been determined that the whole effort is for these children,” he said.
