Cyprus welcomed its first medical lending centre on the 9th of January.
One of the biggest challenges faced by many communities across Europe during COVID was the severe shortage of medical equipment for community members who were discharged from hospitalisation and were recuperating at home due to pandemic restrictions.
Each Chesed centre is brought to you by the charity, Friendship Circle Cyprus, and the Jewish Community of Cyprus, and includes over 300 items, including oxygen generators, wheelchairs, bathing chairs, crutches, rollers, pumps, cots, TENS devices, blood pressure monitors, and dozens more.
The centres will provide a maintenance service for the preservation, sterilisation, and repair of non-perishable medical equipment and accessories. It will also manage a logistical system for the distribution and collection of the equipment and accessories to and in the homes of people in need.
Services are available to all citizens and visitors in Cyprus. Our plan is to expand across the island, opening centres in Nicosia, Limassol, Paphos and Ayia Napa.
