I especially thank the singer Takis Zacharatos for this memorable evening, the “Pallas” Theatre, the Municipality of Athens, the Panas Group, and the Board of Directors of Lifeline who all made this possible.”
HRH Crown Princess Katherine said: “There is no greater joy in life than the joy of giving. My parents, who were great philanthropists, taught me that at my early age. I want to encourage as many people as possible to see themselves what joy you feel when you provide to others, to those in need. And that is something we need to teach our children as well and to give them the opportunity to contribute so they can feel the joy of giving, and it becomes a part of their whole life. By supporting the children of Ukraine and to “Elena Venizelou” state hospital you have made it possible for many lives to be saved and made a great difference for the wellbeing of others”.
