Annual back to school essentials donation drive

Summer has come and gone. The leaves are far from turning yellow, but have no illusions, autumn is here! Reason for being sad? Not at all!!!

Autumn has a beauty, we all secretly miss. Only recall the first days of school, your days or your children’s ….. or grandchildren maybe? Remember the excitement in their faces?? …. And your frustration in shopping for uniform (formal, casual, physical education, for summer, for winter), school bag, coloring pencils, markers, pens, (of all sorts and colors!!) shoes, and the list can go on and on and on! … If one is able to do all these, then the excitement is double, parents are happy, kids are glowing. But what if one can not?

We turn to the kindness and giving spirit we all have within us and ask for your genuine support and contribution! We only ask you go just a bit out of your way and send our way back to school essentials! We collect: pants, shirts, skirts, sweaters, physical education clothes, bags, and other essentials always in good quality, you might be willing to give.

On our end, the Unit for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Torture and the UNHCR funded project ‘Strengthening Asylum in Cyprus’ – will forward to families of refugees in Cyprus who are in need of these products. Begin your autumn in a positive spirit, help a fellow human being and feel good!

Drop off point: Future Worlds Center Unit for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Torture, 5 Promitheos Street, Apt 4, (behind Cleopatra hotel), Between 10:00 am – 17:00 pm. Interested individuals please contact us via email at:

Thank you for your support!
