Philanthropy originates from Greek words meaning “Friend to Human beings”. It also forms part of the complex constellation of values of the Greek term “Philotimo” which is difficult to define, but very meaningful in Greek culture to describe a way of life.
“Since my early childhood, I understood the significance of Philanthropy and the virtue of Philotimo through the actions of my beloved parents. They instilled in me a sense of duty and the joy to help others in need. I believe it is an obligation to show kindness whether someone is hungry, requires physical assistance or is in need of mental health support. Without good health, nothing else in life matters! Giving back to causes for the greater good of humankind is not only meaningful, but it gives me a sense of worth and purpose in life! Now more than ever, sharing kindness and goodwill is a priority for the remaining years of my existence on this earth!” – Mina, Canaropa Shareholder
