We were motivated to make a difference, after visiting a refugee camp called Kofinou in 2016. We witnessed a lot of suffering and dire conditions, in addition to a lack of basic resources (such as sanitary products).
Since then, in Cyprus and across Europe, we have experienced a rise in anti-migrant and anti-refugee rhetoric from most key institutions in society. The treatment of refugees in Cyprus worsened further during the Covid-19 pandemic. This worrying trend endangers people who have already suffered enough.
Marking World Refugee Day, we wish to celebrate the incredible strength and heart of refugees and to let the world know that REFUGEES ARE WELCOME. Vicinus have organised an online fundraiser event, where we are hosting various artists to perform in support of refugees. This page is the official donations page associated with this event.
The money raised will go towards various refugee camps in Cyprus. We aim to raise money for resources sorely needed.
Our ultimate aim is to vastly help improve Cyprus refugee camp conditions, and to show our solidarity with refugees from all of the world!
Please support our project if you can! We are very grateful for any kind of support we receive. If you are unable to donate monetarily, please share our event and donations page.
From all of Vicinus, thank you for all of your support!
