A Paphos initiative that aims to make children’s lives better particularly at Christmas will this year focus its efforts on a children’s home in Paphos.
The facility is state run, and although the authorities provide all of the basic needs for the children living there, a roof over their head, food and clothes and a team of dedicated staff, the initiative said ‘it’s simply not enough.’
“We intend to brighten up the home and improve their living conditions and also give them the tools that all children require to have the best chance academically, so that they will feel they have a home they want to return to each day after school and a bright future when they leave and enter the community as adults,” they said.
Before this drive, the children had no duvets or thick blankets and very few pillows.
The property is a three-bedroom house and the women are hoping to raise 5,000 euros via a ‘go get funding’ page to purchase items on a list. Just over 900 euros has been raised so far.

Included on the list are a wide range of bedding items, furniture, a printer and rugs.
She added that only new items are being sourced, as until now, the children have only known second hand items and clothes

One kind supporter has already organised a number of presents for the children to find under a Christmas tree, she said.
“We have got them Christmas decorations and two new Christmas trees, but we still need lights to put on them,” she said.

Another company has donated paint and volunteers are required to carry out light painting duties next week,
