Alternative Christmas Gifts

You might like to consider giving a loved one the gift of a donation to our Safer Birth project in the Jawadhi Hills or the Person to Person Scheme this Christmas.

Our Safer Birth appeal is raising funds for an urgently needed labour ward in the Jawadhi Hills. In the Jawadhi Hills it is often dangerous to give birth and it can take over 12 hours to reach medical help. 

The Person to Person scheme enables donors to pay for the cost of an individual patient’s treatment. It is a very cost-effective and personal way of supporting someone who might not otherwise be able to afford essential medical treatment. The recipient of your gift will receive a report from CMC with a patient story and a summary of all those who benefitted. 

We have cards for you to let your loved one know all about the difference their gift will make!

Please use the form below to inform us of your intended donation. Press submit once you have completed all the information and then make your donation by bank transfer or card payment (details beneath the form).

Now please make your donation:

Electronic Bank Transfers may be made to our bank account: Friends of Vellore UK: HSBC, Sort Code 40-02-13, Account number 41865986

Alternatively, you can make a card donation using PayPal or Just Giving.

If you would prefer to make your donation by cheque, please download and print the form here. Cheques should be made payable to Friends of Vellore and posted to the office (address details are on the form).

100% of your gift will go towards the cost of the relevant project: Safer Birth or Person to Person. Where your gift is eligible for Gift Aid, 20% of the Gift Aid is used to cover our running costs. So if you make a gift aided donation of £100, Friends of Vellore UK can claim £25 in Gift Aid. £120 is allocated to the project and £5 goes towards the charity running costs.
