Providing Food Parcels For Families in Need
Despite the increasing Covid-19 cases in the last days of 2021, the Mesarya Lions cooperated with the staff based unions organised at the Eastern Mediterranean University and provided food aid to 15 families in need before New Year’s Eve, after receiving a call for help from the Social Services Department’s office in Akdoğan, Famagusta.
