The idea with hippos belongs to the charity organization Sophia Foundation. The initiators of the project turned to large companies and invited them to "adopt" man-made hippos.
The cost of "adoption" is 5000 euro.
All collected funds will be sent to the I Cook & I Offer Fund, which provides free breakfast for all junior high school students. Hippos will remain in the arrivals and departure halls until 31 July.
Recall that the first tourists in Cyprus were elephants and hippos.
