The completion of the anti-flooding project for the Mountain areas of Larnaca, which were affected by the catastrophic fire of July 3, 2021, was announced on Wednesday, December 8, at the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment.
The specific projects, which were essential for the shielding and protection of the areas, were studied and designed by a team of experts and their implementation was completed immediately, in the best possible way.
In the context of actions of the practical contribution and social solidarity programme "Symmetochi", Charalambides Christis undertook the full financing of the flooding works, participating in the first and most life-changing project for the protection of the areas.
In his greeting, the Minister of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment, Mr Costas Kadis stated that the rain of the last few days proved the necessity of the 16 flood dams that were built to protect the fire-affected communities.
The community leader of Ora village, Mr Aristos Miltiadou, described with emotion the unprecedented intensity and extent of the fire, which he characterized as lava, as the wrath of God, which no one could stand against.
On his part, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company, Mr Alexis Charalambides, among other things, stated: "Our company, Charalambides Christis is faithful to its vision through the actions of the practical contribution to the society as well as its Corporal Social Responsibility and social solidarity programme: ‘’SYMMETOCHI’’.
In this context, our first concern was to work with the Government and the communities affected by the disaster, to consider what was the necessary step to protect the communities and citizens. "Today is such a day, a day not of words, but deeds."
