World Refugee Day 2004: Cyprus

World Refugee Day 2004: Cyprus

20 June 2004

UNHCR staff register refugees at the Douma registration center on the outskirts of Damascus. Registering with UNHCR ensures that the most vulnerable refugees receive aid.

A UNHCR newsletter was distributed to refugees to inform them about their rights and to strengthen the dialogue with them.

A press conference was organised on World Refugee Day in cooperation with a Group of Volunteers for the Support of Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Cyprus, the Asylum Service and the Ministry of Interior.

A note on World Refugee Day, with this year's special theme, was sent to schools by the Ministry of Education.
