Special Initiative: One Dream One Wish

In addition to the above mentioned actions, PwC Cyprus in collaboration with PwC Foundation are supporting the "One Dream One Wish" association, fulfilling the wishes of children with cancer and related diseases.

For 2023, the organisation has decided not to send gifts to clients and associates but instead offer this amount to the "One Dream One Wish" association.

Philippos Soseilos, CEO of PwC Cyprus and President of PwC Foundation, noted: “We are profoundly inspired by the passion and dedication shown by our volunteers. This initiative is a tangible expression of our core values at PwC, where we strive to make a meaningful impact in all communities. It's more than just volunteering; it's about creating lasting change and fostering a spirit of unity and support that extends far beyond this week. I am proud to lead an organisation where commitment to well-being and contribution to society as a whole is an integral part of our identity."
