Cypriot photographers volunteer their time to work with refugee children who have been living in Cyprus with their families, after escaping war and persecution in their homelands.
The UNHCR Office and a number of organisations around Cyprus will be marking this year’s World Refugee Day with a number of dedicated events and activities in Nicosia, Larnaca and Limassol.
On the occasion of World Refugee Day 2018, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra will be performing a concert to honour the strength, courage and resilience of those forced to flee their homes and homelands.
UNHCR initiated this project to support refugees’ efforts in integrating into the local society and start feeling they belong. Empowering refugees to share their stories and perspectives on their current lives in Cyprus with the wider public can help in bringing together refugee and local communities.
