Over 1,500 refugees and asylum seekers have registered at our Dignity Centre in Cyprus and they need your help.
Whatever you can donate will help with the costly running of this vital service. Just click on the DONATE box to make an easy, secure donation.
Refugees in Nicosia are forced to live in terrible accommodation, with negligible chances of a job and neglect undermining their mental health.
With just a little support from you, we can change that.
We have created ‘The Dignity’ – a unique and popular drop-in centre in the heart of Nicosia offering critical services to whoever needs them. Everything we offer is free and we have systems to ensure the services are available to everyone.
Every month it costs about 13,750 euros (£12,500) to run. Please help to maintain this vital service with either a single or monthly donation.
For any single or regular donation of at least £50 the Refumade shop will send you a discount code for £10 off any of their fantastic products. Any single or regular donation of at least £100 and you will receive a discount code for £20 off!
The Dignity helps people to:
1. FIND EMPLOYMENT
- Professionally run English and Greek language classes every week with qualified local teachers
- Computer skills classes for 6 people every month
- We help 5-10 people every week write their CVs
- We ship in bicycles, repair them and have distributed over 200 to help people get fit and get work
2. EARN AN INCOME
- A busy sewing workshop for over 30 men and women to learn new skills and make money from items they produce
- We sell those fantastic items through our online shop Refumade
- This sits at the heart of the Centre and has just been expanded
3. COMBAT HUNGER
- When Covid stopped us providing breakfast for 75 people every morning we set up food bank for 200 people
4. RESTORE DIGNITY
- We have a popular Barber service every Friday when 12 men can get their hair cut and our 3 barbers are learning a new trade
- Showers and washing machines open every day for people to feel fresh
- Monthly hygiene packs for 85 women
5. SPEND TIME WITH OTHERS
- A comfortable space to relax, shelter from the weather, and have fun
- Organised football tournaments twice a week for 18 keen footballers
6. HELP THE HOST COMMUNITY TOO
- We buy what the refugees need locally, in turn supporting the local economy—and building crucial bridges between local people and the new arrivals
The Dignity Centre is much more than a drop-in centre. It’s a place of hope and safety where people are given the space to rebuild their lives on their terms.
