Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society

In 2021, despite all the challenges and the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society, treated hundreds of patients at the “Arodafnousa” Palliative Care Centre in Nicosia, and at the “Evagorio” Day Care Centre, in Limassol. Overall, the Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society has offered almost 63,000 palliative care services to thousands of cancer patients and members of their families, free-of-charge.

The Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society relies on fundraising activities, particularly the “Christodoula March” and the #stiMaxi (Fight Against Cancer) campaigns, to support its free services, which are co-organized with Bank of Cyprus for 23 consecutive years. Since 1999, the Bank of Cyprus’ contribution to the Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society has exceeded €2.3 million. Despite the pandemic restrictions, with the partnership and support of the Bank, donations reached €328,000, a 14.7% increase over 2020.
