Lordos Organisation is the epitome of a man’s success with the vision and the will to affect the lives of thousands of his fellow citizens in his beloved hometown, the city of Famagusta.
Mr Constantinos G. Lordos was born in 1940, five months from the start of the Planet’s so-called «Second World War». His childhood memories included games but also bombs falling from the sky within feet of his parents’ house. By the time he was a teenager, Cyprus was embarked on its liberation struggle and bombings, murders, concentration camps, prison and executions were the mainstay of the daily news.
He went to London to study architecture. Two months after his return to Cyprus as a graduate ready for work, Cyprus was immersed in a bloody civil strife which lasted 4 more years. Constantinos, between his bouts as volunteer for the Greek side, tried to build a life and a business but it was a tantalising attempt which he once described as «One thousand steps forward and 999 steps backward».
