British Deputy High Commissioner Ian Whitting, visited North Nicosia Mayor Mehmet Harmancı, and donated 500 euros worth of shopping cheques to the LTB’s Women’s Shelter.

The donation was made on behalf of the commission staff.

Mr Whitting said that the donation was made in support of the British High Commissioner’s International Day of Women 2017, the UK campaign to end all forms of violence against women and children and to defend women’s rights internationally.

Similar support will be given to a non-governmental organisation that gives help to asylum seekers in Limassol.

We are delighted to make this symbolic gesture to show our support for the Nicosia Turkish Municipality’s Women’s Shelter,” Ian Whitting said.

Whitting also noted that Britain has for the first time appointed a Special Representative on Gender Equality this year.
