Ryder-Cheshire Australia

Australian Ryder-Cheshire Overseas Aid Fund

 Ryder-Cheshire Australia is now raising funds to sponsor individual residents and patients at Raphael, the Ryder-Cheshire Home in India, and the health and disability programs at Klibur Domin, the Ryder-Cheshire Home in Timor-Leste.

The cost of a full sponsorship is $1 per day, or $365 pa, but any amount is welcome. This money is a contribution towards food, accommodation, and medical care. Details of the patients, residents and programs being sponsored are provided twice annually to sponsors.

Every dollar of sponsorships and donations received by Ryder-Cheshire Australia reaches the people who are sick and disabled, in our Homes.


100% of all funds donated to Ryder-Cheshire Australia reaches the people who are sick and disabled, in our Homes.
