Stories of Return

What’s like to reintegrate again to your country of origin?

It’s really important for us to share the stories of people who return voluntary back to their countries which have been helped by the AVR Cyprus, in a human and a dignified way. In this way we can share with the rest of the world our mission and goals and present an alternative method of returning back. Find out how it was all this procedures for the returnees both psychological and social level. 

We would like to thank all those who have shared their stories with us. To protect the privacy of individuals, all names of the people featured in stories of return are fictitious - and the photos are not necessarily of the people in the stories.
