HELP: An online information platform for refugees in Cyprus

UNHCR Cyprus launched in October 2017 an online information platform for refugees and asylum-seekers living on the island. A mobile-friendly website that is accessible at, the “HELP” platform seeks to serve as a one-stop information shop, offering comprehensive, accurate and objective information that is essential for refugees and asylum-seekers in Cyprus. The Help platform is updated on a regular basis.

We hope that through this user-friendly platform we can adequately inform and empower as many people as possible in their efforts to adapt to and integrate into the social, economic and cultural fabric of the host society.
