In 2014 we launched Alkionides UK Birmingham & Midlands in order to support Cypriot patients undergoing treatment for ‘amyloidosis’ at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. Our dynamic Team and our Midland Greek Communities provide moral support, transport and translation services and raise funds for future assistance with accommodation and other essential requirements.
In 2019, thanks to the Keith Coombs Trust, the Birmingham and Midlands team instigated a new programme to help Cypriot children with special needs and their families by arranging outings and other events that they would not normaly be able to experience. Through this programme the families have had the opportuinity to meet each other and draw mutual support.
