By Andrea Charalambous

More than 7,000 people have been helped at Migrant Centres operated by the University of Nicosia, Tepak and Cardet in the 18 months they have been operating, they announced on Friday.

The project has run from December 2020 and will finish on June 14. It is co-funded by the Asylum, Immigration and Integration Fund and the Cyprus government.

However, Migrant Service Centres have been operating on the island for five years, and have developed services based on the values of active listening, understanding, empathy and support for vulnerable migrants.

More than 280 vulnerable people have been accommodated in the temporary accommodation facility, which aims to provide support services to migrants and beneficiaries of international protection and their integration into society.

The project also offered counselling and psychological support services, professional guidance, facilitation in completing applications and access to other services.
