Cans For Kids

Connect with Cans For Kids on:

For the last 28 years Cans For Kids, a registered charity, has been collecting aluminium cans from all over Cyprus and recycling them to raise money to buy state-of-the-art medical equipment for the children’s wards at Makarios Hospital. To date equipment worth almost a quarter of a million euros has been donated. We also raise awareness about the importance of sustainable living by visiting schools to explain the issues, and hosting school visits to our recycling centre, where they get hands-on experience. Every Saturday our volunteers gather to sort the cans for baling and we actively encourage the ethos of volunteering, which promotes active citizenship and the feel-good factor of “giving something back” to society.
