The Cyprus Samaritans
Cyprus Samaritans was established in 1997 and is affiliated to the International Network of Befrienders Worldwide, which operates in 38 countries over 6 continents.
Our trained volunteers provide a listening and face to face support from our Centres in Paphos and Limassol. Our Charity shops cover the bulk of our income; the funds we need to sustain our service. Volunteers work in the two Paphos shops and the one in Limassol.
Our mission is to provide confidential emotional support to those who are feeling distressed, lonely or unable to cope, who would like someone to listen to them without being critical or judgemental.
You do not need to be in despair or suicidal to contact us. Sometimes it just helps to talk. We operate every day between 4pm and 12 midnight and our freephone number in Cyprus is 8000 7773.
The Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends, PASYKAF is a registered charity no 525. It was founded in 1986 by a group of cancer patients, their families and their friends. It provides its services to more than 5000 cancer patients and to their families every year. The Association depends on fundraising events and public donations.
The mission of the Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends is to create a better quality of life for cancer patients and their families and to promote awareness on cancer prevention and control.
What we do:
The Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends supports cancer patients and their families, runs information and prevention campaigns, advocates for cancer control policies. The Association also regularly organises and hosts international and national conferences and seminars.
Funding for post graduate studies in the field of cancer and palliative care is also provided for doctors, nurses, psychologists and paramedical staff.
PAWS Dog Shelter is a purpose-built care facility for abandoned, rescued and abused dogs and pups. Cyprus Association for the Protection and Care of Animals (CAPCA) is the name of our registered charity (Charity Reg. No 1721).
Our mission is to offer our dogs a better quality of life and to re-home as many as possible to loving homes, thus making space for new dogs to be admitted to the shelter.
Located in Acheleia near Paphos airport, we exist solely on donations, fund-raising, sponsorship and money raised through our charity shop. We welcome public visits to the Shelter on any day of the year (including weekends) between 07:00 and 12:00.
