XM has provided basic necessities for several hundreds of young unaccompanied refugees staying in Pournara Reception Centre for asylum seekers in Cyprus.
The centre in Pournara acts as the first reception and registration centre for refugees arriving to Cyprus. These people have been forced to leave their homes to escape disasters that put their lives at risk. Among them there are many orphans and children who had to leave their families behind.
For refugee children, basic necessities are often hard to obtain. Teenagers aged from 15 to 18 years hosted by the centre arrived in urgent need of underwear, shoes, and socks.
There are more than 700 young refugees staying in various asylums on the island who need support. Partnering with organisations that help to build a better future for them remains one of our core corporate social responsibility priorities.
