IronFX Global thrives on having a responsible corporate attitude. With this in mind, the company donates generously to local charitable organisations and activities in order to actively engage with the community.
It is impossible to measure the impact one good deed can have in someone’s life, that is why Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an essential part of the IronFX company policy. With the aim to support children with special needs, IronFX is proud to contribute to cover the expenses of this year’s charity event of The Association of Parents and Friends of Children with Special Needs.
The Association was founded in 1991 and has as its primary objectives the protection and care of children with special needs, by supporting and ensuring that all children’s and their parents' daily problems are met to an acceptable and sustainable level.
The Association is organising a concert by Giorgos Stamataris with conductors Mr Marios Toumba and Mr Neophytos Neophytou, promising a musical journey from the time of Gounaris to that of Kraunakis. The event is called “Two pianos, one voice” and will be held on Wednesday, 5 December, 20:00 PM at the Pattihio theatre in Limassol, Cyprus.
IronFX will further support the events of organisations that create a positive impact in children’s lives.
Reaffirming its socially responsible orientation in supporting vulnerable groups, on November 2017 IronFX attended as a Bronze sponsor the ‘Cyprus Association of Individuals with Clefts & Craniofacial Anomalies, Chrysalida’ fundraising event, of Dr. Zoe Nikolaou.
