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.
