Led by Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas, the AHEPA Family Leadership Delegation concluded a successful visit to Cyprus, April 7 to 9, 2022.
The delegation met with President Nicos Anastasiades, Presidential Commissioner for Humanitarian Issues and Overseas Cypriots Photis Photiou, and His Beatitude Archbishop Chrysostomos II of Cyprus.
