Orbex, a leading online Forex broker, was one of the main sponsors of the ‘Light It Up Blue’ campaign, dedicated to the World Autism Awareness Day, celebrated annually in April. Alongside with Cyprus Autistic Association, Orbex is committed to promoting the true values of human differences.
Orbex was at the front line of the initiative that came under the auspices of the first Lady of Cyprus, Andri Anastasiades. It aimed to give prominence to problems and challenges, facing individuals on the autism spectrum. The initiative goes beyond the bound of people and families with autism; it strives to engage the general public.
This unique event took place in Limassol on the 2nd of April. Thousands of people around the island responded to the initiative and participated in traditional, annual walk for the support of those with autism.
“When you have a chance to make a difference by doing something helpful you shouldn’t think twice. That’s why Orbex didn’t hesitate to support such a significant cause as the International Autism Awareness Day, and we ‘Lighted It Up Blue!’ Our joint efforts with Cyprus Autistic Association gave an opportunity to share the problems and challenges of people on the Autism spectrum with a broader audience. We are excited to continue our support for what has now become a meaningful matter for Orbex and allowed us to expand our commitment to supporting the social causes and non-profit organizations,” said Marilena Iakovou, Orbex Marketing Supervisor.
Orbex believes in equal opportunities and strives to inspire and empower the people, affected by autism. It is high time to introduce the real significance of sympathy and support of those, who need our solidarity.
