A big thank you to George and his team to a successful Charity Concert. Some action pictures below: 
 
We were honoured to welcome the CEO of the Hellenic Bank, Oliver Gatzke, as our speaker this September. He spoke about banking and the Cyprus economy to an appreciative audience, who later had several questions. Oliver was presented with a certificate stating that the Club would make a donation to RI Polio Fund on his behalf. There were several visitors, including two PDGs, one AG and one President from the UK.
 
Congratulations!  Our club has earned the Rotary Citation, the most significant award a Rotary club can achieve, for 2020-21. During a year that was challenging for many Rotarians around the world, our club demonstrated a commitment to achieve its goals, which ultimately helps strengthen Rotary and shape our future. Well done and thanks for all your help and support.

A big thanks to the Anemi Hotel and their excellent team who looked after us and their chefs for an amazing meal. Thanks for supporting our club and we wish our new president Juergen Krekeler a successful year.

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.
