‘Cans For Kids’ collects 25 mln cans for Cyprus charity

‘Cans For Kids’, a volunteer-based charity set up in 1990 to raise funds for hospitals from the sale of recycled cans, has so far collected more than 25 mln cans, according to co-founder and Vice President, Rosie Charalambous.

She said that the combination of raising awareness about recycling aluminium tins and the concept for volunteerism, has helped donate €260,000 worth of state-of-the-art medical equipment to the Makarios children’s hospital in Nicosia.

In recognition for its work, Cans for Kids won the Energy Globe Award, the so-called ‘Environmental Oscar’, in the category “youth” in 2013. It recycles about 9-10% of the used beverage cans exported in Cyprus and now has can banks all over Cyprus with the list locations available at

Cans For Kids has just completed a project with the Turkish Cypriot ‘Cyprus Green Action Group’ which has resulted in a similar scheme starting up in the north.
