About

M. Ciuzelis Charity Foundation (the registered name M. Čiuželio labdaros ir paramos fondas) was founded by Kristina and Marius Čiuželiai in late 2014 aiming to foster philanthropic traditions in Lithuania, to inspire others for mutual help and assistance, and the development of personal and social responsibility. Philosophy We believe everyone deserves a life worth living. Mission To help and support those who can not take care of themselves. Vision To become the center of origination, development and financing for social innovations aiming to support the most vulnerable groups of our society. One of the main focus areas of the Foundation is to improve the quality of life for the elderly people. We aim Lithuania to become an age friendly country where old age people are an integral and important part of the society, where everyone fosters appropriate respect for seniors and seeks old age people to live a dignified, purposeful, active and healthy life.

Current projects

There are more than 500 000 old age people living in Lithuania. Our society is aging at the fastest pace in the whole European Union and it is estimated by 2030 every third resident in the country will be older than 60 years old. All that has been followed by diminishing human and social relationship, loneliness, isolation and even bad health and poverty. Based on the data from Statistics Lithuania, almost half of the population over 65 years old live alone, hardly 5% of them still work, up to 20% live in poverty. According to the most recent data from Global AgeWatch, Lithuania ranks only 63 out of 96 countries based elderly people living conditions. „Sidabrine linija“ (the Silver Line) is our solution to fight loneliness and isolation of elderly people in Lithuania: it is a free of charge be-friending and support line, providing information, friendship and advise to old age people. „Sidabrine linija“: > Offers regular befriending calls. > Protects and supports those who are suffering abuse and neglect. > Offers information, friendship and advice. > Clears the air for the good mood and a better health. > Empowers elderly people to overcome difficulties. The impact we already achieved is clear and undoubtful – the registered number of our callers reached 2 000, they had already 25 000 befriending and emotional support calls lasting 600 000 minutes. To sustain and develop our helpline further we need your support.
