Support the Association for the Welfare of People with Mental Handicap!

The Association for the Welfare of People with Mental Handicap is organising a fundraising event on Wednesday 27 June, at 7pm, at the grounds of its day care centre in Strovolos.

Founded in July 1990 by the parents and friends of people with mental handicap, the Association has been offering care and support for adults with such severe physical and mental handicaps at two day care centres – the Favierou Centre in the heart of Nicosia close to Paphos Gate, and in Strovolos on Archbishop Kyprianou Aveue.

Having met with both Ms Mary Katsioloudi and Mr Petros Markou from the Board just recently we were touched by their dedication to making the Association a sustainable organisation that can provide for people from all walks of life, and regardless of ethnic or religious background. For more information you can contact Ms Katsiolidou at: katsiol@cytanet.com.cy.

See you there!

Talking media ethics in Birmingham

The Forum in full swing

The Journalism & Media Ethics European Media Forum got underway in Birmingham, UK yesterday, with the participation of CCMC’s very own Larry Fergeson, called up as a member of the Board of the Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE).

The Forum is part of the Council of Europe’s MARS – Media Against Racism in Sport programme, which aims at including non discrimination and the expression of diversity as an ongoing angle of media coverage, and encourage innovative production across different media.

Back in January CCMC hosted the Cyprus National Media Encounter as part of the MARS programme, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the active participation from local and international media professionals and civil society activists.

Check out the Forum on Facebook, find out what’s on here, and follow proceedings online!
