Friends of Vellore

Friends of Vellore (FoV) are a group of charitable organisations which support the Christian Medical College & Hospital, Vellore in India. This site is maintained by the Friends of Vellore UK, a charity which has been operating for over 50 years.

We are particularly keen to ensure that everyone can receive appropriate medical treatment regardless of their ability to pay. Friends of Vellore UK provides funds for programmes treating disadvantaged communities in India through various methods, including schemes such as the Person-to-Person scheme.
