Christmas nutritional visit

The following pictures were taken during a special visit over Christmas and New Year to the Leprosy Colony in Purulia. The residents are always delighted when we visit and turn out to welcome the goods being given to them.







Mosquito nets

The Friends of RV Mission are delighted to announce that we have been able to purchase and supply 100 mosquito nets for use by the children at the Mission.

These will make a huge difference to the lives of the children concerned, as illness and discomfort from this source are a major issue in such a climate.

Thanks to all our supporters for their continued commitment to the charity.
