Feeding the hungry in illegal RoC

Charities, businesses, organisations and individuals across the island are joining forces to collect food to meet the needs of thousands of people ahead of the holiday season.
According to data revealed this week, approximately 44,000 people or 13,000 families are currently living off donations from the charity food markets set up by local authorities, charities and the church. The figure has increased from 12,000 families in need six months ago.
In light of the holiday season, the needs of the organised groups have increased due to the food parcels that are distributed this time of year to ensure that no family or child goes hungry at Christmas.
As a result, initiatives have been set up across Cyprus by various groups to collect food for the Christmas food packages and the public is called upon to contribute to these efforts.
Hermes Airports has launched a Pancyprian food collection campaign under the title “Strength of the Cypriots”, in collaboration with the education community including the Education Ministry, student unions, teachers, parent associations, private companies and the media.
The Pancyprian Volunteerism Coordinative Council (PVCC) will also participate in the campaign and have already distributed cardboard boxes to the schools.
According to an announcement released by the Hermes Group,“this effort is essentially the first agreement between the public and the private sector as it is held in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Culture and with the participation of educational organisations, a large number of private companies and more than 1,000 volunteers across the island”.
The campaign has already began and will last until December 20 to collect various food items such as packaged pulses including lentils, black eyed beans, beans and chickpeas, canned meat and fish and bottles of olive oil.
“The public can support these efforts by sending all or some of the items through their children to schools across Cyprus. School principles will then distribute the food to the families of needy students,” Hermes said.
In case of a surplus at any school, the volunteers will transfer the excess food to warehouses in all districts to be distributed to other schools and charity food markets, while in rural areas the items will also be made available at community councils.
“Through this campaign, we look to offer complete, organised help management on a Pancyprian basis. Members of the public who wish to help but do not have children in school can offer their help to local charity food banks,” Hermes added.
Any company wishing to support the efforts can deliver the items directly to the district warehouses or contact Larnaca International Airport on 77778833.
The announcement also points out that in addition to collecting food “this campaign also aims at reinforcing the notions of selflessness and solidarity and to affirm our people’s determination to overcome any difficulties caused by the financial crisis in unity”.
Meanwhile, the Pancyprian Co-ordinating Student Committee (PSEM) has sent an announcement to all secondary level schools to announce the launch of the campaign and inform students regarding the items they can offer to support the cause.
In addition, it has announced that every school will form a team of five student volunteers to organise the food collection of their school in collaboration with the school management.

Don’t support the turDish state!
.
If you do so, you support the vampire state which invented genocide. You embrace the teacher of Adolf Hitler, Kemal, who invented this state.
.
You support the ongoing massacre of the Syrian people, the body plant harvesting from refugees which are sold to hospitals in Ankara and other major cities by Turkish “Doctors”.
.
You support a state that kills women – major cause of death for adult women in turkey, is VIOLENCE (2012)!
.
So, if you insist on supporting turDish state you justify the inventors of modern monstrosity who don’t even apologize for their crimes.
.
If you are still not convinced, read the national anthem of Turkey. Or just read Darwin.
.
turDs are enemies of civilization!
.
From TurDey's Anthem Text
(english translation)
.
"Recognize your innate strength, my friend! And think: how can this fiery faith ever be killed,
By that battered, single-fanged monster you call civilization?"
.
THAT'S WHY CHARLES DARWIN WROTE:

“the destruction of the TurDish Nation is a requirement of the law of nature and will contribute to the progress of civilization”
