The Kalaydjian Foundation is a non-profit benevolent organization
set up in 1984 with the purpose of helping disadvantaged and needy
members of society, with a major focus being on the Armenian community
According to its founding charter, the Foundation aims to set up
and maintain a rest home for the elderly, grant scholarships to
gifted students for higher education in Cyprus or abroad, give
financial assistance to people in urgent need of medical treatment
abroad, provide aid to disadvantaged members of society in Cyprus,
provide funding for the restoration of buildings and monuments of
traditional character and/or architecture, and to promote and sponsor
the development of culture and the arts in Cyprus.
One of the Kalaydjian Foundation’s main roles at present is the
running of the Kalaydjian Rest Home for the Elderly, which it opened
in March 1988 in Nicosia, Cyprus. The Kalaydjian Rest Home was built
by the brothers Bedros and Aram Kalaydjian in memory of their parents
and originally comprised 12 rooms, but following a major renovation
and extension in 2005, it now boasts 22 rooms with capacity for
a total of 40 people. Its facilities include two large sitting
rooms with libraries and satellite television, two dining rooms,
and air-conditioning, television and private bathrooms in every room.
Furthermore, a small chapel was added next to the home in 1996 to
address its residents’ spiritual needs.
