It is with great sadness that we let our supporters know that Pat Smith died on 19 July after a short illness in hospital.

Pat, with her husband, our chairman Rev. Clifford Smith, were the founding members of the charity and have visited India many times.

The funeral  was held on Thursday 15th August at 11.00am with a service of remembrance held in India at the same time (3.30pm there). 




We welcome three new girls to the Pat Smith Home for Girls today (7th July 2019). Sirivalli and Navitha Grace are lucky enough to have already found sponsors but 10 year old Sulthan, seen here in the pink, is still looking. Sulthan's father died last year and her mother has T.B so is unable to work, making life very difficult for the family. If you know someone who would like to sponsor Sulthan, please get in touch.

We are a small charity with a big challenge - supporting work among the poor in the south Indian state of Andhra Pradesh (A.P.). with our Indian partners, SalGOERCO, maintain two orphanages, two schools, family and educational support, widows with children, and a small home for the elderly destitute. They also work with HIV/Aids families and landless communities.
