On Thursday, 28 June, hippos filled the court in front of the presidential palace in Nicosia. The charity fund Sophia for Children was created within the framework of the project Let's Hippo together! 21 hippo from fiberglass and invited Cypriot artists to paint them. Then the initiators of the project turned to large companies and suggested that they "adopt" man-made colorful hippos. The cost of "adoption" is 5000 euro.
All funds collected during the action will be transferred to the Sofia charitable foundation and to payment of meals for children of primary schools that remain on an extended basis. The first lady of the Republic of Cyprus Andri Anastasiadu was the guest of honor of the event.
