Grants and donations from foundations and individuals will allow us to continue providing our services to our beneficiaries but also to embark on specialist projects that will meet the needs of some of our the more vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees. They may be more vulnerable because of the experiences they had back in their home country, or because they are young and here in Cyprus without parents.

Funding also allows us to carry out much-needed research and to campaign for asylum seekers’ and refugees’ rights. It also helps us to plan ahead and ensure that we can help future asylum seekers and refugees forced to flee their country of origin.

Our commitment to you

• We will spend your money wisely The FWC team is committed to using the money we raise directly on providing protection to asylum seekers through our legal, social, policy, and public information work. We have minimised the amount spent to run FWC and we aim to raise further funds.

• We will provide high-quality legal and social advice for our beneficiaries For the past six years we achieved a positive outcome in numerous cases taken on during the year. This is testament to the extraordinary commitment and expertise of our legal team.

• We will continue to speak out against injustice Our campaigning work aims to achieve a number of critical successes, including progress on access to the quality of legal representation and the treatment of women seeking asylum. The way in which asylum seekers and refugees in Cyprus are treated remains wholly unacceptable, however, and the FWC team works every day to highlight and address this unfairness.

• We will continue to help the most vulnerable The FWC team provides legal and social advice to hundreds of the most vulnerable asylum seekers every year. We provide a dedicated telephone advice line for asylum seekers and refugees, and welcome enquiries by email. We aim to reach people in the community who might benefit from our help, and take referrals from a wide network of organisations.
