Orthodox Charity Ball

A charity ball of the Greek Fondation Philanthropique Orthodoxe was held in Geneva on November 9th that was attended by Ekaterina Gerus, Vice President of Donor Relations for the Endowment for St Andrew the First-Called Foundation.

The Fondation provides support for financially challenged members of the Orthodox community in Switzerland. Charity balls in Geneva are held by the Fondation once every two years with each event raising over 4 million Swiss francs. This year’s funds will be sent to the Republic of Cyprus as an aid package, above all, for socially disadvantaged groups such as the unemployed, families with many children, and pensioners.

“Our organizations have a lot in common: Orthodox values, donor groups and approaches to raising funds for good deeds,” said Ekaterina Gerus describing her impressions of the event. “There is little doubt that we will collaborate and share our experiences.”
