    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has sent messages of condolences to Spanish President Jose Louis Rodriguez Zapatero and Minister of Foreign Affairs Miguel Angel Moratinos over the loss of lives in Wednesday`s plane crash.

    ``Please accept the deepest and sincerest condolences from me, the government and the people of Cyprus over the loss of so many lives in the plane crash which happened yesterday, August 20, at Madrid`s international airport,`` President Christofias says in his messages.

    He calls on Zapatero and Moratinos to convey the condolences to the families of those killed in the crash and the people of Spain.

    [02] CYPRIOT DOCTORS - SRI LANKA

    The Cyprus division of Doctors of the World will be handing over to the Sri Lankan authorities next week a series of projects that have already improved the standard of living of locals, especially after the December 2004 tsunami and its consequences.

    President of the Doctors of the World (Cyprus) Elias Papadopoulos has told CNA that so far 45 volunteers of the organisation have visited Sri Lanka and that a Cypriot mission was the first to reach the area that was affected the most by the tsunami.

    Papadopoulos explained that these volunteers medically helped thousands of homeless, who were taken to temporary shelters.

    He added that the people of Cyprus have contributed generously and so the organisation decided to extend its aid to infrastructure projects, which mainly concern providing potable water to six schools, constructing lavatories in housing settlements, staffing and restoring two hospitals in affected areas and one in another area of the country, and feeding 1,200 children at a school for over a year.
