The event took place on Thursday, June 29, as part of the “Creativity with a Purpose – 10 Years Orb” action, which falls under the Corporate Social Responsibility actions implemented by ORB over time and was held on the occasion of the company's 10 years of creative progress. They were attended by the Mayor of Aglantzias, Mr. Andreas Constantinou, members of the Non-Profit Organization Voice for Autism, partners, customers and friends of the company.

ORB undertook to completely rebuild the park's basketball court, giving back to the local community. During the event, ORB members took up brushes and paints and with the help of graffiti artist and illustrator Stelios Papageorgiou – who is based in London and traveled to Cyprus exclusively for this project – painted the floor of the stadium , adding color to the everyday life of park visitors. The inspiration around the design comes from the “Be an Angel” action of Voice for Autism, with the ORB team giving… wings to the ORBer, conveying in a smart and creative way to the public and especially to the new generation, the message of Organization.

In her brief greeting, Managing & Creative Director of Orb Communications, Ms. Nicoletta Charalambous, thanked the Mayor of Aglantzia, Mr. Andreas Constantinou and the entire Voice for Autism team for the perfect collaboration, which led to the creation of a modern and at the same time colorful space for park visitors. “Those of us in the field of communication and advertising have a responsibility to create campaigns and actions with a positive sign for society. This is what we have as a compass in the ten years of our company's presence in the Cypriot market. So we took advantage of the creativity, innovation and sensitivity that characterizes us as a team and created something out of the box, with the aim of raising public awareness of Voice for Autism and its work.” “This action”, he added, “and the cooperation with the organization, are milestones for us. On the one hand, because we are given the opportunity to offer the residents of the area and the visitors of the park a beautiful result, giving life to the space, and on the other hand, because we support the multidimensional and valuable work of Voice for Autism”.

Its goal is the independence of people with disabilities and their inclusion in society. In this direction, the Organization has built two houses in Lakatamia, Nicosia, which are ready to accommodate 6 young adults with autism. To this end, an awareness campaign has been launched, supported by the Organization's Advisory Committee, which consists of Cyprus' leading academics/psychologists/therapists, who work in the field of special needs and wish to build a stronger society that supports the people with disabilities. In addition, he plans to open a restaurant where disabled people can work together, which will boost their self-esteem.
