What We Do

We provide refugees with much-needed material support while offering them stability, solidarity and a sense of normality.

How We Do It

Dignity knows no borders.

Our pioneering Dignity Centres provide a safe, welcoming space where refugees can choose food and hygiene items, just like a normal shopping experience. Our volunteers are kind and friendly, and they genuinely care. 

We work closely with local communities and organisations to create an ecosystem of support—and, when it’s time to leave, we hand over our projects so that the benefits continue long-term.

“The Dignity Centre made me feel like I could belong here. The people I met showed me a view of life that I just hadn’t had before. They have played a vital role in who I am today, and who I will be tomorrow.”
Joseph* from Cameroon
"The [Dignity] Centre is very necessary for us as refugees from Ukraine. Its advantage is that you can choose exactly what the family needs. Thank you for your kindness to us."
Nadezhda from Ukraine
"I had an issue with my labour card and the Dignity Centre helped me rectify it and ensured the labour office knew it was an honest mistake. They support us with these things in mind.”
David* from Liberia
"We are very grateful to this organisation for their work, such necessary positiveness, kindness. This is one of the few places where we always go with a good mood and know that we will get the necessary goods. [They] are incredible!"
Victoria from Ukraine
"The Dignity Centre is the only place in Cyprus with an open door. For people in these situations, to be able to turn up somewhere, drop in, see a person, take advice—it’s invaluable."
Ali* from Iraq
"The best help centre, very pleasant, polite and always smiling staff, you can choose everything you need. My child is always happy to come, as [they] also thought for the children."
Olga from Ukraine
“Without the Dignity Centre after leaving the camp, life in Nicosia would not be easy.”
Marie* from Cameroon
"Simply the best, greatest attitude, your smiles, point system. Thanks a lot for your help, your team will be always in our hearts!!"
Igor from Moldova
