  • Description


    Hello everyone!!! We are a family living on an area of 3000 m2 in Aradippou on the island of Cyprus, (15 minutes from the sea). Our story started after we were planning to make our little house in the countryside and experience the rural culture, a little pig was found on the highway while on his way to slaughter. The little pig lived after surgery on his leg and pelvis and came to live with us when he was 3 months old. That's how we ran to make room for Sympa that kept growing!!! Little by little, many rescue animals became in our place, where slowly in our company we found other beaten, abused but also healthy animals whose only concern was to save them from the slaughter that these living creatures are subject to. So on our Farm there are 4 adult pigs and 6 little ones, 2 goats and 2 sheep, 3 donkeys and a small horse, a bull, many ducks, geese and chickens. The space was created exclusively at our own expense, with manual constructions and creations, with consumable materials and the help of many volunteers for labor. The goal of all of us is to create some works so that the public can visit it, get to know the animals that are here from the rescues by learning the story of each animal, how it was rescued and how happy it is that it will live with the love of the world until a very old age. To teach young children that stories about pigs that bite, goats that gore you, and bulls that get angry and run at you do not EXIST if the conditions in which an animal is raised are lovingly and properly cared for (always paying attention to the safety codes of each different animal).Our vision is based on the principles we have, which are based on selfless love, giving and respect for animals and the environment, nature and people. We have as our vision and wish to realize the development of this relationship and respect between man and animals, through getting to know many kinds of animals, their habits, their needs and their nature. We want to bring children of all ages and families, close to nature, farm animals, abandoned animals, plants, etc. Broader and more specifically, we want to create a center to rescue farm animals and others, to live the rest of their lives with dignity, prosperity and love.
    Come and help us create something beautiful in our world!!!
