NEW YORK – Nicos Zittis, National Chairman and President and the Board of Directors of the Cyprus Children’s Fund (CCF), announced the support of seven nonprofit organizations in Cyprus, which help children and adults with special needs, with donations totaling $15,000. This is a continuation of the yearly donations the Fund would distribute from its Annual Gala profits and donations made to the Fund from individual contributors and organizations. While the CCF was unable to hold its Annual Gala in 2020 due to the pandemic, it was able to raise funds through a virtual Month of Giving campaign in November.
This year, the donations have been distributed among the following organizations:
Theodokos Foundation in Limassol, which supports and cares for people with special needs; Margarita Liasidou Foundation in Paphos, which cares for children and adults with special needs, including overnight accommodations; and the Cyprus Association of Parents and Friends of Children with Cancer in Nicosia (Παγκύπριος Συνδεσμος Γονέων και Φίλων Παιδοογκολογικής Μονάδας) which has been created to support and help children with cancer and their families; Association of Parents and Friends of children with Special Needs in Limassol (Σύνδεσμος Γονέων και Φίλων Παιδιών με Ειδικές Ανάγκες), which supports children and young adults with special needs; Melathron Agoniston EOKA, for their children rehabilitation and recovery program; Autism Society of Cyprus, Paphos’ Branch (Σύνδεσμος για Aτομα με Aυτισμό), which supports individuals with autism; and Prosvasi, an organization founded by volunteers in 2005, helping people with special needs.
