limassol’s response to child welfare
Limassol is addressing the needs of unaccompanied minors by constructing new residential units that prioritize the children’s welfare and integration within the community. The project aims to avoid past issues of ‘ghettoisation’ and provide a safe and inclusive space for all children in need of state protection, irrespective of their background.
