Benefit for child victims of AIDS

A philanthropic musical evening, organized by Honorary Ambassador of the Ivory Coast Mero Kesesioglou and Egyptian Ambassador Dr Magda Shahin on Wednesday, March 30 at the War Museum, where the lovely young Egyptian musician Nesma Abdel Aziz played the marimba, was a great success. The evening was in aid of African children suffering from AIDS, most of them orphans. In the USA, it was Elizabeth Taylor who first held a benefit for AIDS research and in London it was Sir Elton John. Indeed, little has been done until now in Athens, although many benefits are held for disabled children and for victims of other serious illnesses. The event at the War Museum was sponsored by Lancia. Public Relations Officer Corina Pateli-Bell was there representing Fiat Auto Hellas, along with a number of prominent representatives of politics, the arts and the business world.
