The Union of Cypriot Pensioners (EKYSY) urges the elderly to take all the necessary measures to protect themselves from the heat that has prevailed especially in recent days in Cyprus.

At the same time and according to its announcement, EKYSY "recommends the Municipalities and Community Councils to grant their air-conditioned spaces to the elderly and other vulnerable groups so that they can spend these difficult days in a cool environment".

He adds that "this will especially help those pensioners who do not have an air conditioning system in their home or if, due to the significantly increased cost of electricity, they cannot afford to use it even if they do."
