We've done it! Our aspiration to purchase a permanent base for our patients, the 'Nest', in London has just come true. We now own a property near Brent Cross and local hospitals. The photo shows the house which has now been renovated to provide six bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.
The Charity relies on volunteers who selflessly dedicate their time and effort, with no reward, in order to help families facing severe financial and medical hardship. The Charity works in close co-operation with the Cyprus High Commission in London and the Ministry of Health in Cyprus.

'Alkionides’ are the Halcyon days, the calm bright days in the midst of winter that, according to Greek myth, the Gods gave to the kingfishers to enable them to hatch their eggs on the rocks. Similarly, we aim to brighten the days of low-income patients and their families who come to the UK to undergo medical treatment that is not yet available in Cyprus. We also have a dynamic team in Birmingham and the Midlands who support families that have children with special education needs and disabilities.

We raise funds with the help of generous sponsors and by organising cultural and social events. The charity prides itself in that all money raised is used to help the patients and their families as administrative costs are kept to an absolute minimum.
