Welcome to Paphos-Aphrodite Rotary Club Art Sale, a joint effort with renowned Iranian artist Elham Razani, to raise funds for ShelterBox and the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit of Makarios Hospital in Cyprus.
 

Buy stunning Original Art to support Life Saving Charities

This is an opportunity to beautify your home or workplace and also help people in extreme situations or children with serious medical needs.

Elham Razani is a renowned Iranian artist, who has exhibited her paintings in four continents and who is equally happy painting abstracts or works that pay homage to her Persian heritage. A dedicated artist, each work is a work of love.

Her husband, Robin, is a Rotarian of Paphos Aphrodite Rotary Club and he recognised the opportunity to make a significant contribution to worthwhile Rotary projects through the sale of Elham’s work.

Therefore of the proceeds of this sale, both original and in print form, 20% will be given to either ShelterBox or the Paediatric Ward at Makarios hospital in Nicosia – see the descriptions on the website.

When you buy you will be given the choice of charity you wish to support. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase exquisite art and to make a significant contribution to two worthy causes.

 
Our club members (including our Easter Bunnies) did a great job last Saturday with Avgerinos Charity to collect money, food and baby product donations for Paphos families in need. Several trolley loads of food and a total of €365 will help so many families. Thank you to all those who donated and especially a local farmer who promised a donation of 300 eggs.
Happy Easter, Kalo Pascha to all.
 
We had our first fellowship and we all enjoyed it very much at Muse, Paphos. As one of our members commented: 'The venue was perfect, food amazing & how wonderful to socialize with our fellow club members, especially new members we have not had an opportunity to meet in person till now. So nice to have a little bit of normality back in our lives.' We all had a good time and felt safe. 
For this meeting we decided to support Robin's kitchen. Our members ordered lasagna and tiramisu from Robin's kitchen and collected it but we ate all together our meals via Zoom. 
It was a very nice meal and good fun. 
 
Imagine every commercial kitchen in your City donating a meal for every sale they make... no one in your City will ever go hungry!
You might think is impossible and yet, a well run kitchen can produce an extra meal for every sale and still manage to cover all the associated costs, as long as the owners don't keep the profit to themselves.
Robin's kitchen is a non-profit kitchen with a unique selling proposition:
“For every meal you buy, we donate one to people in need.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The new plaque below the Rotary mosaic is now installed on our new Rotary Square. Now we give credit to the artist but also to our contributor RC of Westport, CT, USA and to our own club. 
A big thanks to George who organized it all for us, from the design to the installation. Well done  !
 
Grassroots at the core, Rotary links 1.2 million members to form an organization of international scope. It started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities.
 
On Thursday the first trees got planted in the village of Choletria in the Paphos region. A big thanks to the team from '100,000 trees in Paphos' , Choletria council as well as to Happy Garden CY. More trees will be planted shortly. Due to the restrictions we are slowed down. A big thanks to all our supporters, their donations and the hard work of our planters. If you like to support us please donate via our website. Thank you very much.
 
We know have purchased and selected the trees for Choletria village. We bought 40 Olive trees and 40 Carob trees and they are now delivered and will be planted shortly Thanks for everybody supporting our Trees project this year. 
Please continue to donate via our website or via GoGetFunding. Thanks for your help and support. 
 
Since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, Paphos-Aphrodite Rotary Club members have worked hard to support local families in need with food and other essentials.
 
Due to a public collection and further donations, we have been able to donate €800 euros worth of food and baby supplies to Avgerinos. This charity will distribute these to families who still need ongoing support at this time.
.
We would also like to thank Papantoniou Supermarkets for their kind offer of a discount on the items purchased which means the families will benefit even more.
 
As we would like to help more, therefore please help your fellow citizens in Paphos and donate now:
