→ In culturally diverse environment of cyprus, muslim and christian authorities have come together to start a joint restoration project to save places of worship, culture and history. Over 40 sites have already been identified as a risk for being lost. It is so good that people have come together to save these places of worship even though being from two different communities. The article talks about the history of the island of Cyprus and how the Turkish military illegally occupied the place and converted the churches to mosques or destroyed them. But now with the help of EU funds they hope restore and rebuild the friendship between the two communities.
