US-based Cyprus Children’s Fund to support 10 Cypriot NGOs with $100,000

The President and Board of the Cyprus Children’s Fund (CCF) has announced the support of ten nonprofit organisations in Cyprus with donations totaling $100,000.

In a press release, the CCF, which is based in the US, said the organisation is renewing its dedication to its noble mission with the continuation of its yearly grants to nonprofits and programmes in Cyprus that support children and young adults. The funds the organisation is distributing are revenues from its annual fundraising event and donations made to the Fund from individual contributors and organizations during the last year.

In remarks, the National President of CCF, Nicos Zittis said “year after year we have been able to financially support the wonderful and very much needed work of a number of nonprofit organisations in Cyprus”.

He said these organisations provide immensely valuable services to individuals with disabilities and serious illnesses, and their families. Having its own Scholarship Programme, he added, the CCF “strongly believe in the value of education and we also support the Independent Social Support Body which provides financial assistance to students attending institutions of higher education in Cyprus”.

The 2023 donations are being distributed to the Independent Social Support Body (ISSB), the Theotokos Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House Charities Cyprus, the Association of Parents & Friends of Children with Special Needs, the Autism Society – Paphos Branch, the Margarita Liasidou Foundation, St. Loucas Community, the Archangel Michael’s Hospice, the Pancyprian Association of Parents and Friends of the Children with Cancer (Oncology Unit), and  Mikroi Iroes (Little Heroes).
