We provide accommodation and financial support for needy patients and their families sent by the Republic of Cyprus for medical treatment in UK hospitals
We promote research for the public benefit into the groups of persons who are in need of medical help and to disseminate the useful results.
‘Alkionides’ are the Halcyon days, the calm bright days in the midst of winter, that according to myth the Gods provide to the kingfishers to enable them to hatch their eggs. Similarly, we aim to brighten the days of families facing desperate times.
In 2018 Alkionides Charity will celebrate 20 years since its registration in Cyprus in 1998 (registration no. 1970) and 10 years since its registration in England with the Charity Commission (registration no. 1125976). The Charity relies on volunteers who selflessly dedicate their time and effort, with no reward, in order to help families facing severe financial and medical hardship. The Charity works in close co-operation with welfare services and acts without delay.
