RAZIYE Kocaismail, chair of the Tulips which raises money and help toward cancer patients in Cyprus stated that the association is at risk of closing and called for support towards an aid campaign they have launched.
Making a written statement, Kocaismail called on the community to support the aid campaign that started on February 14 saying: “Tulips, with your help, has ‘limped’ along since 14th March 2020 when the TRNC locked down the first time however they now find themselves on the brink of closure. No events or fundraisers can take place and a second lockdown is upon us with no knowing for how long. Tulips has staff wages to pay from 1st February and with the 1st March so close they do not know how they will manage. The TRNC Government does not pay for the wages of some of the hospital staff, Tulips does. Tulips also looks after cancer patients who simply would not have treatment if they were not there to support them.”
So far they have raised over £13,000 of the set £15,000 goal and if any wishing to donate can do so by visiting the crowd funding page on: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/stoptulipskhydfromclosing
