Welcome!

   

Good to see that you are interested in our work. On the following pages we would like to tell you about our projects in India.

 

You will certainly realize very quickly that we are mostly concerned about safeguarding medical care for the poor children in the tribal villages of West Bengal. For this reason we are currently in the process of establishing a children's hospital in which children can be looked after and cared for.


By building public washhouses and lavatories and with the help of regular workshops we will succeed in improving the hygienic conditions in the villages in the long run. This will also help to prevent many health-related problems up front.


We intend to support the people in India in their endeavor at independence also with the help of sustainable projects such as the building of solar installations, the organization of food programs and a small bakery.


Please look for yourselves and page through the different reports we have compiled for you.
