Cyprus Children’s Fund Supports 10 Nonprofit Organizations in Cyprus with $100,000


Nicos Zittis, National Chairman and President of the Cyprus Children’s Fund (CCF) and the Board of Directors, on February 5 announced the support of 10 nonprofit organizations in Cyprus with donations totaling $100,000. The organization renews its dedication to its noble mission with the continuation of its yearly grants to nonprofits and programs in Cyprus that support children and young adults. The funds the organization is distributing are revenues from its annual fundraising event and donations made to the Fund from individual contributors and organizations during the last year.

Zittis stated: “Year after year we have been able to financially support the wonderful and very much needed work of a number of nonprofit organizations in Cyprus. These organizations provide immensely valuable services to individuals with disabilities and serious illnesses, and their families. Having our own Scholarship Program, we 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. We are in the position to do everything we do thanks to our organization’s sponsors and supporters and we are very grateful for their selfless generosity.”

The 2023 donations are being distributed to the following organizations:

  1. Independent Social Support Body (ISSB) which financially helps students studying at colleges and universities in Cyprus, who would otherwise not be able to complete their studies due to financial hardships.
