Response to Covid-19


The Stelios Philanthripic Foundation in view of the unprecedented situation as a result of the Covid-19 crisis has had to make changes in the way it gives back to society.

Sir Stelios has pledged to give GBP1m in the next few months to various good causes relating to the COVID-19 in the UK.

Other sums relative to the local needs and the local population will be made available in the other home countries.

The first such Covid-19 specific giving was the GBP150k offered as a thank you gift to the some 4750 front line carers working in the Leonard Cheshire homes.

Other programs such as the food from the heart program in Greece and Cyprus has had to be curtailed to observe the social distancing rules.

The entrepreneurship awards scheduled for the UK , Greece and Cyprus will be postponed for 2021.

We are looking for new ways to help the local communities at this time of crisis – please email for any suggestions.
