Sweet kids Christmas Party

12 January 2014
Last month the Cyprus Diabetes Association organized a Christmas themed weekend for children with diabetes of ages 0-15 as well as their parents. Antonis Soteriou, our Young Leader from Cyprus, was asked to organise the entertainment during the event. The event started Saturday afternoon. The members of the board of the Cyprus Diabetes Association gave a welcome speech and the rest of the afternoon was filled with a game of bingo and some snacks. During the evening there the parents had the opportunity to talk with each other about diabetes and to share experiences. On Sunday morning after breakfast and the New Year’s cake, Santa made his appearance and gave presents to everyone. The children had the opportunity to take pictures with the players of Anorthosis football team. Later that day, Antonis sat down with the children to do arts and crafts. He also asked them their expectations of the upcoming summer camp and what activities should be organised at the camp. Antonis about the weekend: “All this was a great experience for me since I had the chance to chat with the children and their parents and to tell them about my experiences at the World Diabetes Congress in Melbourne.” Antonis was very happy that the Christmas weekend turned out to be a success.
