How to support our mission

The Lyreio Childrenís Institution receives no grants or subsidies of any kind. The children are supported entirely by both large and small donations from friends in the form of individuals, companies and organizations who support our mission, by endowments, and by money the Institution receives through leasing buildings it owns.

Additionally, an annual lottery, approved by the Ministries of Economy and Health, takes place on the Institutionís premises on the last Saturday of each December. The first prize is always a new car, with further prizes of lesser value. The purpose of this lottery is to financially assist in the completion of the Childrenís Village of the Lyreio Childrenís Institution and enable restoration of houses destroyed in the blaze of 1995, as well as ŰÔ contribute to the overall well-being of our children.
