Deputy government spokesperson Niovi Parissinou on Wednesday handed over a government donation to the Anti-Cancer Society as part of the organisation’s annual fundraiser.
Parissinou delivered the government’s symbolic donation at the Arodafnousa palliative care centre.
She congratulated the Cyprus Anti-Cancer Association for its 50th year anniversary. “I express the warm thanks of the state for its important contribution to Cypriot society,” she said, adding that it is an association that provides care and support to cancer patients.
Parissinou also urged members of the public to support and continue to support “the commendable effort of the Association. Even the smallest contribution counts”.
The campaign In the Fight Against Cancer, organised by the Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society and Bank of Cyprus (BOC), will run until September 12.
It is taking place within the framework of the well-established Christodoula March, which couldn’t take place in April due to the pandemic.

It also offers home care services for patients, a psychological and social support service programme, physiotherapy and aromatherapy services for cancer patients and patient transportation services from all cities to the Oncology Centres in Nicosia and Limassol.
