Thank you to our donors and sponsors

HEAL (Health and Education for All) relies entirely upon the generosity of its donors, child sponsors, fundraisers and supporters across the world to create and fund its projects on the ground in India. While continuing to support its existing education and health projects in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, HEAL has embarked upon an unprecedented scheme to create a self-sustaining and eco-friendly safe haven for thousands of orphaned and severely disadvantaged children - HEAL Paradise Village. This model development, being built at a cost of an estimated £4.75m, is made up of school buildings and housing for children and their care workers, an institute for the visually challenged, a vocational training centre, and a health centre incorporating a clinic for child amputees. Much more is planned, but we can only achieve our goals with your support. If you or your company is interested in offering financial support to HEAL, please get in touch via the Contact Us sections of our websites at www.healcharity.org or www.healparadise.org.
