On Friday, June 21, 2019, through the social solidarity programme, SYMMETOCHI, our company in collaboration with the Municipality of Nicosia, in Platanos Square of Ayious Omologites, carried out the delivery of the project of upgrading the neighbourhood of ‘’Human communities – Ayioi Omologites’’.
Having our galataki chocolate milk as the main tool, Symmetochi got involved in the new movement of the ‘’Human Communities’’ programme to upgrade the Ayioi Omologites neighbourhood, which has been the hometown of the dairy industry since 1945. This particular movement was sponsored by the Cypriot Love Brand, galataki Chocolate Milk of Charalambides Christis and the sales of its collectible package, which represented the main characters of the film, ‘’Βουράτε Γειτόνοι’’.
In less than 6 months, the project was completed in collaboration with the Municipality of Nicosia and the core of Αyioi Omologites was handed over to the citizens, fully upgraded, following a special plan to improve and make the neighbourhood more attractive, with recyclable materials and lighting, with energy-efficient lighting, benches framed with pots of flowers and asphalt paving. The Ayioi Omoloyites neighbourhood is now more environmentally friendly and a proper residential area for people, both for the daily lives of its residents and visitors.
More specifically, through the SYMMETOCHI programme of Charalambides Christis and the movement of the "Human Communities" programme, the area was aesthetically and functionally upgraded from the church of Agion Omologiton to Platanos Square. All the materials used are environmentally friendly, while their aesthetics blend harmoniously with the traditional character of the area. In the context of the movement "Human communities", Charalambides Christis was also involved for visual works in the abandoned buildings on this main street of Agion Omologiton.
Through a symbolic melodic greeting, the beloved singer Stavros Konstantinou sang the famous song "Platanos" a capella. Finally, the event ended with a tour of the project and then a dinner was held for the guests at "Achillion".
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of Charalambides Christis, Mr Charalambides gave a short greeting in which he stated: ‘’The current project we have delivered, regarding the movement of ‘’Human communities’’ of the company’s social solidarity programme SYMMETOCHI, confirms our consistent commitment to act on our daily trust with our Cypriot consumers, in our place, in our society and our community’’.
The Mayor of Nicosia, Mr Konstantinos Giorkatzis, also noted that "the Charalambides Christis company with this generous sponsorship is joining hands with the Municipality of Nicosia to improve the quality of life in the historic neighbourhood of Agioi Omologites. The company's contribution to the efforts to implement environmental upgrade projects of the core of Agion Omologiton is particularly important ".
