Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, the charity organisation established by easyJet founder Stelios HadjiIoannou, is offering €100,000 worth of supermarket vouchers to Cyprus frontline hospital nurses tackling COVID-19 as a show of appreciation.

The €10 vouchers, available in stubs of 10, will be distributed only to members of the Cyprus Nurses Association working at Nicosia General, Nicosia’s Makarios hospital, as well as the general hospitals in Limassol, Larnaca, Paphos and Famagusta. Frontline nurses in private sector hospitals are excluded.

The voucher can be redeemed only at AlphaMega supermarkets, that is putting up 30% of the cost.

The Stelios Foundation has in recent years been providing grants to bicommunal projects and has set up community kitchens in Nicosia, providing free sandwiches to needy people and some schools.
