The National Federation of Cypriots in the United Kingdom, based in London, will create a special committee to examine how to come up with proposals to help the National Solidarity Fund for Cyprus with financial contributions and investments as its economic crisis worsens, similar to efforts the Greek Diaspora has undertaken to help their homeland.
According to CyBC, among others, proposals for financial contributions, sending of food and the organization of a concert in order to collect money for help, were submitted.
The President of the Federation Peter Droussiotis expressed his belief that once again, the large Cypriot community of Britain will respond to the call of Cyprus for support and solidarity. The Cyprus High Commissioner Alexandros Zenon congratulated the federation for the initiative and said he believes Cyprus will overcome its problems.
The President of the World Federation of Overseas Cypriots Harris Sophoclides mentioned that Cypriots around the world will come together to help Cyprus in any way they can.
