The Medical School community participated in various charity activities organised by the Student Affairs Team to raise awareness and money for men’s health as part of Movember 2017.

Events held last November, included a basketball tournament in collaboration with the Scalpels Basketball Club, a coffee sale sponsored by Costa Coffee, a bake and food sale day, a blood donation day and a sweet-jar competition.

A total of 1,000 Euros was collected: 500 Euros was donated to the Movember Foundation, and another 500 Euros to the Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends (PA.SY.KA.F).

We are very grateful to all students and staff who contributed to this good cause and we would like to assure everybody that we will continue our efforts to support these and similar initiatives!

During the month of December 2017, Medical School staff and students donated clothing items to the Cyprus Red Cross Society (Nicosia Branch) for the needs of children and adult refugees. We wish to thank the Middle East and North Africa Association (MENAA) Club for their initiative and we hope these items will put a smile on the faces of those in need!

Please stay tuned for events planned for this semester: another Aerial Yoga session, a Latin dance class, a football tournament and a tavern night!
