We’re honoured to renew our gold sponsorship to Pournara First Reception Centre for the eighth consecutive year. The gold sponsorship includes a donation of shoes for unaccompanied children, women, and vulnerable groups to help them get back on their feet and rebuild their lives.

Pournara First Reception Centre is the largest refugee camp in Cyprus. It currently houses over 4,000 people, including more than 1,000 unaccompanied children. The centre provides food, shelter, medical care, and other essential services to refugees who have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict or persecution.

XM’s donation of shoes will help ensure that the children, women, and vulnerable groups at Pournara First Reception Centre have the footwear they need to stay safe and healthy.

The shoes will also help to boost morale and improve self-esteem.
