Tulips Information Leaflet

We´ve just received an email from Carole and Sue from Tulips that we are happy to share with our readers. We know that although Tulips is known amongst most of the expat community here in North Cyprus there are still many people that don´t understand exactly what and how much this important association is doing to help cancer patients and their families.

Hi Petter,

To this date, there are still many members of the expat community who seem to have very little or no understanding of how Help Those With Cancer Association/Tulips can actually help cancer patients. Therefore we have enclosed a 2-page leaflet that aims to provide that information to anyone who has been diagnosed with or already are experiencing cancer in the TRNC, or who knows of someone who is.

The first page is all about giving you information about a support system that we have put in place for Ex-pats within the TRNC and what that provides.  The second page is about our fund-raising and volunteering, basically what you can do to help us help you….

We are hoping that you would be able to publish this leaflet, either just the support page or both if you are willing so that we can spread the message to as many people as possible about what Tulips can provide.

We think it is really important to let people know what is available to them, especially when they are living in a foreign country where language and knowledge is limited.

Secondly, we have revamped our Tulips website and it is now up and running. It can be found at and is full of information about what we do and how we can help. Also will be giving information about forthcoming events and news. Promoting this will help us all gain the knowledge we need to deal with any cancer situation in the TRNC.

Thank you for your time and sincerely hope you will support us in these initiatives.

Best wishes,

Carole and Sue
