The Responsibility under which we operate towards society is based on the core belief that our mission goes beyond the limits of our primary corporate role as a banking organization. As we go Beyond Banking, we aim to make a difference by elevating the Cyprus society and contribute to its continued socioeconomic development, by remaining a strong driving force of Sustainable Development in the country. As a result, we could not stay indifferent in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We created SupportCY, a network of companies and organizations and supported the state mechanism and society in general. SupportCY became a legacy that will continue to offer, based on the collaborations and mutual support of its members.
MembersFrom the first days of the of outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in our country (March 2020), we created SupportCY.

Our ongoing actions in the Health pillar
In the Fight against cancerSince 1999 we have been longstanding partners with the Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society. We have been supporting the Society’s efforts to raise public awareness on cancer as well as its fundraising activities in order to maintain and upgrade its services and facilities. With the contribution of our volunteers/members of our staff, we provide extensive support to the annual event “Christodoula March” which takes place during springtime. Through #stiMaxi (In the Fight Against Cancer), a campaign launched in 2016, we invite everyone to “join the battle” and support the Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society.
En Ergo ProgrammeWe co-finance En Ergo Programme since its commencement in 2016. A programme which aims to provide care to paraplegic and quadriplegic individuals in support of their independence in daily life. The Programme is managed, coordinated and supervised by the Cyprus Paraplegics Organisation, under the auspices of the Ministry of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance.
Folia CentreSince its establishment in 2017 we support Folia (Nest) Centre, which is managed by Cyprus Alliance For Rare Disorders and it is supported by the Ministry of Health. The Centre serves as a point of reference for people with rare diseases and provides approximately 60,000 patients and their families with information, support and education.
Blood DonationsIn order to support the Blood Centre of the Ministry of Health we organize annual blood donations calling on our staff to donate blood. The aim is to save lives or contribute to the improvement of life of hundreds of our fellow citizens who need it
CollaborationsWe collaborate and support small and large scale organizations and patient associations in order to strengthen their annual programme.
