Doris Cusens Fund – Growing Independence
The Doris Cusens Fund builds on the work which Mrs. Doris Cusens, as a Volunteer started back in the 1970s, helping the most vulnerable in our communities. Doris supported the most vulnerable communities through different kinds of donations, employment, psychological support, and any assistance required by the people and families who contacted her.
Through the Doris Cusens Fund, YMCA Malta continues the philanthropic work which Doris, so passionately, started years ago. The fund which has been operating since 2021, has already supported 84 individuals. It aims to support individuals and families living in the Maltese Islands, referred by NGOs and Government Agencies, for financial assistance for daily and urgent needs such as school supplies, education, transportation, clothing, baby items, medicinals, fees for personal documents, and so forth.
