Chryso Makariou, along with her busy schedule, is an active volunteer with an intensive charity action.
She performed many times, for Charity Galas, Concerts, Gala Dinners in Cyprus, Greece, Austria, Slovakia and Bulgaria. She has given recitals for the “Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society”, the “Karaiskakion Foundation” in Cyprus, “To Hamogelo tou Paidiou” (the smile of the child) in Greece, the “SOS-Children Villages” and others. The last few years though, she supports with great love the Cyprus Association “One Wish One Dream” (Ena Oneiro Mia Efhi) helping children suffering from cancer and related diseases.
In 2015, through her own initiative, the Concert “Viennese Christmas” was organised for the first time in Cyprus, her homeland. This was a result of collaboration between the Austrian Embassy in Cyprus, the association “One Wish One Dream” and the First lady of Cyprus, Mrs Antri Anastasiades. Since then this activity became a tradition and also a platform of collaboration between Cypriot and Austrian artists. The concert is always organised in December, one year in Nicosia, Cyprus and the next year in Vienna, Austria, with great success. All the proceeds from the concerts go to the association “One Wish One Dream”, and are allocated for the support of children and their families that are in great need.
Chryso Makariou strongly believes that her work as a volunteer is important and valuable, especially when this has to do with the support of children suffering from cancer and their families. It does make a difference in the lives of these people. She always finds time to support with enthusiasm the enormous work of the Cyprus Association “One Wish One Dream” and she stands by their side in this respect.
