Jan . 10 - CFP Alumns Join Peace Rally
As peace negotiations between the two leaders of divided Cyprus take place in Geneva during the week of Jan. 9 - 12, Cypriots are gathering throughout the week to show their support for a reunified Cyprus. CFP alums joined with members of trade unions and peace organizations in a peace rally held on the evening of Jan. 10 at the Çetinkaya Stadium across from the Ledra Palace in the U.N. Buffer Zone.
Some of our alums shared their hopes for a solution with Al Jazeera, which were broadcast on Jan. 11. We are so proud of our alums who stay committed to bi-communal work and CFP.
Jan. 31 - U.S. Embassy Assures CFP Parents
In light of the confusion that the recent ban on refugees to the U.S. has caused, CFP asked the U.S. Embassy in Cyprus for clarification on CFP teen visas. Here is their statement:
The U.S. Government remains committed to facilitating legitimate travel for international visitors while ensuring the security of U.S. borders. The Executive Order signed by President Trump last week affects the citizens of only seven countries. Nothing in our policies and procedures has changed with regard to those who are not from those countries. We have welcomed your program’s (Cyprus Friendship Program) participants from both sides of the island who needed visas in the past and look forward to doing so again this year.
