Friends of Vellore UK is a charitable organisation which supports the Christian Medical College & Hospital, Vellore in India. We are want to ensure that everyone can receive appropriate medical treatment regardless of their ability to pay. So we raise funds to support projects that in particular benefit those who are poor or marginalised.
We aim to:
- Support education and healthcare in India by enlisting and maintaining interest in CMC Vellore or at the discretion of the Trustees, any other institution of like character, but with special regard to those working in partnership with CMC or participating on CMC led initiatives.
- Assist CMC Vellore or such other institutions in maintaining their Christian character and professional standards through financial, professional, networking and prayer support.
- Give special priority to the needs of the poorest and most excluded patients and communities and through partnership with CMC seek to sustain or bring forward programmes which will benefit disadvantaged people.
