The Folia (Nest) Centre was established in 2017 with the support of the Ministry of Health and in collaboration with the Cyprus Alliance for Rare Disorders (CARD). Bank of Cyprus has been its main partner and sponsor since its establishment. In 2021 the Bank continued to offer building premises to be used as office area by Folia Centre, for as long as required. Folia Centre is currently available to approximately 60,000 patients, providing information, support, and education to them and their families. Other actions within 2021 include, among others, the promotion of transnational technical agreements with international centres, the expansion of the Neonatal Screening Programme, the establishment of a Hepatology Clinic, the financial support of patients, and awareness around post-mortem Organ Donation.
