I haven’t met the Petratou sisters yet but their achievements benefiting the O Sotir orphanage and the children cannot go unnoticed.
After learning that the orphanage was one hundred percent privately funded, i started a facebook page to help raise awareness and hopefully become a source for information regarding donations, volunteering etc., and a place to share ideas. soon after i became aware of the Petratou sisters and the major tasks they have taken on to benefit the orphanage.
I was delighted to learn that both Aline and Stefani have been pivotal in making real changes that have improved and will continue to improve the quality of life for the children, taking on the task that would be too great for most.
In the last couple of years the sisters have been able to raise funds for and purchase a pro dishwasher, a pro freezer and a 16kg clothes washer, to meet the immediate needs of the children. they have also taken on the tremendous task of a total gut refurbishment of the bathrooms which should be completed shortly. they were able to raise the funds, find the vendors and contract the job on behalf of the children. they have been on site daily assuring that the new bathrooms will be perfect for the children.
Although i am sure that the sisters don’t expect accolades they deserve acknowledgement for their accomplishments.
