Paphos Castle lit up in yellow for campaign against childhood cancer

Paphos Castle was lit up in yellow on Tuesday, as part of the “Gold in September” world campaign, for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, embracing the efforts of the Pancyprian Association of Parents and Friends of the Children Oncology Unit.

The aim is to help increase public awareness concerning the dangers of cancer for children, and the difficulties faced by the children who suffer and their families.

The Department of Antiquities illuminated in yellow this World Heritage Monument to highlight the need for prevention and early detection of childhood cancer, but also for underlining the need to reinforce treatments, develop cures and support children.

In a press release, the Department of Antiquities said that it wishes to demonstrate that these children, fighting for their lives, should be embraced by light: The light of love and solidarity amongst people, but also the light of the universal values transmitted through our cultural heritage for a better and safer future.
