“Our beneficiaries are our reason for being!!!”
(Gabriela Achihai, President-Board of Directors)
Community Support Foundation (FSC) is a non profit, apolitical, with no religious affiliation, nongovernmental organization with public utility status, registered in June 1997.“OUR BENEFFICIARIES ARE OUR REASON FOR BEING” it is for them that we bring all our efforts together, we network, we speak for, we run campaigns, and we aim to provide the highest quality of services. We intend to be present in the community for as long as our services will be necessary.
With a team of 130 professionals and more than 250 volunteers we help yearly over 5,000 people through accredited medical, social and educational services.
Our beneficiaries are our peers, part of the same community and we consider it our duty to become involved in helping them. The best example is provided by our volunteers, who dedicate a major part of their free time to our activities: taking care of the elderly, or helping the poor children. If more people would follow their example, social problems would be solved a lot easier.
