A total of 20 giraffes embarked on a symbolic journey from Kenya, and each of them made a stop at a Cypriot artist’s studio, they got ‘dressed up’ and will be exhibited for one month at various locations of Larnaca Airport. The exhibition will be hosted from October 01 – 30.
Passengers will have the opportunity to see the 20 impressive giraffes which were created by the artists, aiming to financially support the Sophia Foundation programmes.
Hermes Airports is a longterm supporter of Sophia for Children, sponsoring the ‘I Cook and I Offer’ programme, within the framework of its Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability strategy. It is a project which was launched in Cyprus back in 2013, at all-day schools aiming to provide homemade meals to children prepared at the schools by unemployed mothers in the area.
Maria Kouroupi, senior manager aviation development and communication, Hermes Airports, highlighted the fact that, “we are happy to support in our own way Sophia Foundation, by hosting at the airport the 20 unique giraffes crafted by Cypriot artists. Endorsing such remarkable social initiatives is incorporated in Hermes Airports’ broader Social Responsibility and Sustainability strategy, while participating at the same time in similar projects as an active contributor to the society”.
