Nowadays the people of Karavas are scattered in the government-controlled areas of Cyprus and in countries like the United States of America, Great Britain, Australia and South Africa.
The people of Karavas have organised themselves into associations and clubs both in Cyprus and overseas, with significant activities. The refugee association “Karavas” was established in Cyprus, the “Lapithos, Karavas and Suburbs Association” in the UK, the “Lambousa Melbourne Association” in Australia and the “Lambousa Cypriot American Association” in the USA. Wherever they are, the people of Karavas preserve their customs and traditions. The most traditional event of Karavas called “The Lemon Dance” is organised every year by all the Associations, both in Cyprus and abroad.
All the Bodies of Karavas in Cyprus, the Municipality of Karavas, and the Karavas Refugee Association, the Karavas Cultural Foundation, the School Board, the Sports Union “AEK”, the Youth Council and the Sea Scouts are housed away from their rightful home. The aforementioned are housed in the Cultural Foundation, in Strovolos, Nicosia. The building was constructed with the contribution of the people of Karavas.
The main goal of these associations is helping the efforts being made to return to the occupied areas of Cyprus through a just and viable solution, where all human rights are safeguarded. For this purpose, they organise various events to highlight the history, culture, and traditions of Karavas.
