The East West Overseas Aid Foundation

The East West Overseas Aid Foundation: General Appeal

The Foundation's work aims to ease the suffering of the poor and disadvantaged overseas through a range of health care, child welfare and education initiatives. Funds raised help to improve the life chances of the men, women and children of Alamparai, a small fishing village in Southern India that was devastated by the 2004 Tsunami.

How will the funds be used?

The East West Overseas Aid Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity funded solely through private donations. Your financial support will help us to continue to provide free medical care to more than 15 000 rural villagers, as well as ensuring the orphaned and abandoned youngsters at the Uluru's Children's Home continue to thrive in a loving and caring environment. You will also be helping us to improve facilities and opportunities for the local community with the construction of a computer centre for training and education purposes; the improvement of education at the under-resourced local primary school; and a quality secondary school so that local children have a real chance at tertiary education.
