At a press conference in Limassol for the official opening of the Limassol centre, board member Emili Yoliti said that the Larnaca centre has already started operations.
The Limassol centre is housed in a space provided by the municipality of Limassol, in the social welfare building at Filellinon street.
The Paphos facility is expected to open soon, Yoliti said.
