In association with Cyprus Autistic Association, Give Your Hand to Autism is a volunteer venture with an ultimate goal to raise awareness and funds for Autism in Cyprus.
Autism means leading an extraordinary life in an ordinary world. With a pure and uniquely beautiful heart, Autism needs a way to survive in an overwhelming and confusing world. Give Your Hand to Autism wants to help the world see its true potential and exceptional mind with an intensive pan-Cypriot awareness and fundraising campaign and event.
Taking place on the 10th of September 2014 at Guaba Beach Bar, Give Your Hand to Autism invites you to Dance & Donate to raise awareness and funds for Autism in Cyprus. Guaba’s numerous charitable initiatives put it outside the box of ‘just’ a party venue and they are now supporting the cause along with local music talents Michel Fialas, Nicolas G, Da Liuz and Mr.Styles who will get you dancing in the name of Autism. Joining on the night will be Tasoulla Georgiadou, President of the Cyprus Autistic Association, as well as Artemis Vlachou, Director of the Intervention Centre in Limassol.
Autism is the most rapidly developing disorder in the world that affects 1 in 60 people, yet there is no known cause or medial cure. It affects how a person makes sense of the world around them and need a lifetime of specialist support. It may also affect their sensitivity to sounds, touch, taste, smells, light or colours. 60% of individuals remain undiagnosed however with the right diagnosis, support and, most of all love, people with autism can have significantly better lives.
The Cyprus Autistic Association aims to secure the rights of autistic people and safeguard a better quality of life for them and their families. They have established specialised intervention centres in Limassol, Paphos and Nicosia that cater to rehabilitation, education, health, employment and protection for autistic children and adults. The association aspires to create a centre with programmes of diagnosis, treatment and residential care where people with autism can live with a sense of independence and dignity.
Give your hand to autism and help them make this dream a reality.
