World Encephalitis Day

Since 2013, Aliki has fostered a meaningful partnership with the Encephalitis International Association, where she actively serves as both a spokesperson and ambassador. This association plays a vital role in raising awareness about the disease, which annually impacts over 500,000 individuals worldwide.

A significant date on the calendar, February 22, is recognized globally as a day dedicated to increasing awareness of encephalitis. Over the years, Aliki has been at the forefront of various initiatives and events aimed at spreading knowledge about this debilitating condition.

In a notable event, Aliki took a proactive stance by organizing a charity concert in Liverpool as part of her Awakenings Tour. This concert not only showcased her musical talents but also contributed to the ongoing efforts to raise awareness about encephalitis. Aliki also presented a concert in Niagara Falls, Canada raising awareness of Encephalitis. She also extended her support by participating in the 42km London Marathon in 2015, proudly representing the Encephalitis Society and emphasizing the importance of solidarity in the face of this health challenge.

The year 2021 marked another impactful moment in Aliki’s advocacy journey. Responding to her call, the Department of Antiquities embraced the Encephalitis Society’s campaign by illuminating the Medieval Castles of Larnaka and Pafos, along with the Pattichio Municipal Theatre in Limassol, in striking red lights. This symbolic gesture not only demonstrated the unity in addressing encephalitis but also highlighted the collaboration between Aliki and various entities to amplify the message of awareness and support for those affected by the disease.

Brain on Fire – February 21, 2024

Aliki, along with her dedicated team, is orchestrating an impactful event to heighten awareness of encephalitis, scheduled for February 21 at 8 pm at 7 Seas, in Limassol, Cyprus. This initiative is not merely an event but a powerful platform designed to shed light on the challenges faced by those affected by encephalitis.

All the proceeds from the evening will be directed towards the Encephalitis Society, a crucial organization committed to supporting individuals grappling with this neurological disorder.

To further amplify the impact, the event invites sponsorship, providing an opportunity for businesses and individuals alike to contribute to this noble cause. Those eager to participate can secure their attendance by pre-purchasing tickets or exploring the option of event sponsorship.

Alternatively, a direct donation to the Encephalitis Society can also be made for those who wish to lend their support but are unable to attend. Aliki’s commitment to this cause shines through, and the event promises not only an evening of entertainment but also a collective effort to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by encephalitis.
