Elderly and unemployed are among those seeking free care at the volunteer clinics

Free clinics, which are open every weekend, treat unemployed, low income people, pensioners and children and are operated by volunteer doctors and nurses.

Education minister Costas Kadis will lead the Nicosia walk which will begin form Eleftheria Square at 11am.

In Limassol, the walk will begin from the Ayios Nicolaos roundabout at 10am and will be led by First Lady Andri Anastasiades.

In Larnaca, Defence minister Christoforos Fokaides will lead the walk that will begin at 11am from the Old Larnaca Hospital.

The walks will also be supported by the Cyprus Motorcycle Federation and the ‘Pericles Demetriou’ runners club.

During the walks, €2 vouchers will be sold and the proceeds will be used to assist the free clinics.

Before the events, members of the Volunteers Doctors will also give free diabetes and blood pressure tests.
