Volunteers of the Nicosia Heart Patients Association decorated Easter candles which will be sold to financially support the charity.
Two types of colourful candles are available for €5 and €7 after placing an order with the association. Volunteers make and sell the candles each year.
“Get the coolest Easter candles and make the difference this Easter,” the charity wrote on their social media.
Profits from the sale of the candles will help support the work of the non-governmental organisation, which aims to improve the life quality of heart patients, including medical care.
The association also works towards spreading awareness regarding heart diseases.
Since its foundation in 1983, the association helped to create an independent Cardiology Department at the Nicosia General Hospital, which was the starting point for the establishment of the Cardiac Surgery Department and the Catheterization Unit.
Moreover, the Nicosia Heart Patients Association operates the only Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre in Cyprus. Aiming to promote exercise among people with heart diseases, the centre has suitable gym equipment and a telemetry monitoring system.
A cardiologist, physiotherapist and psychologist offer supervision during operating hours.
