A bicommunal event for children organised in Nicosia to mark International children’s Day

An event for children to mark International Children’s Day will be held on June 1 at Cetinkaya Football pitch, organised by Nicosians � Intercommunal Municipal Coordination Group and under the auspices of Constantinos Yiorkadjis and Mehmet Harmanci.

Speaking during a press conference, Eleni Loucaidou, Municipal councillor for Nicosia Municipality and Safiye Ozaltiner, councillor in the Turkish occupied part of Nicosia, said that as Nicosians one of our main concerns is the children’s well being throughout the island, noting they believe in building up continuously a friendly environment for children in our city through dialogue and actions.

They said it is important to acknowledge that our children are not only future guardians of a peaceful island but also important individuals today and it is their responsibility to provide an environment for children where their childhood needs are satisfied.

As Nicosians we dream of a city that embraces all children, regardless of their origin, language they speak, physical disability, their faith and/or colour, they added.

The event will start at 1630 until 1930 and will include sports, arts, choirs, orchestra, dance, workshops, traditional games, live music and karaoke.
