Cans For Kids is a registered charity, formed in 1990 to organise the collection and recycling of aluminium cans in Cyprus. To encourage people to save their cans, it was decided to use the proceeds to purchase medical equipment for the children’s wards at Cypriot hospitals.
Since its inception, more than 30 million cans have been collected, and over €273,000 euros worth of equipment has been donated to the Makarios Hospital in Nicosia, which is the central paediatric hospital in Cyprus, treating seriously ill children from all over the island.
By saving your cans for Cans For Kids, not only do you help the environment, but you know that your efforts are giving something back to the community.
Learn about the importance of recycling and how you can make every can count.
