Introduction

History

Caritas Cyprus is one of the smallest Caritas members and is currently going through a fallow period while it carries out a process of reflection on its work. However, despite its small size, Caritas Cyprus has played an important role within the network, especially in the response to the conflict in Lebanon in 2006.

In the days after the July 12 outbreak of fighting in Lebanon, thousands of foreign nationals, many of them Lebanese holding foreign passports, fled to Cyprus en route to other countries. A staff of just two and 30 volunteers stepped in to help, providing translation services and whatever other assistance they could to the exhausted and often traumatized evacuees.
