Paphos castle will be lit up red all week to raise public awareness over congenital heart defects, the department of antiquities said on Monday.

The campaign is being led by the Association of Parents and Friends of Children with Heart Disease, whose main aim is to raise awareness and inform the public about congenital heart defects, which are abnormalities of the heart that a person carries from birth.

The castle will be lit up each night from Monday to Saturday.

In a statement the department said it takes part in the social policy of lighting up monuments with great pleasure and the hope it will “strengthen the efforts of the Association while sending a message of support to all vulnerable groups of people”.
