Hope for Children expands operations beyond Nicosia

Board member Emili Yoliti

Humanitarian organisation Hope For Children is extending its facilities and services beyond Nicosia to Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos, it was announced on Wednesday.

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.

“The offices will be staffed with qualified personnel, psychologists and social workers who will support the work done in Nicosia, with the services of the organisation closer to the place of residence of each child.”

Referring to the mission of the organisation, she said that it is based on the practical protection and promotion of the rights of the child, as laid down in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Cyprus ratified in 1991.
