Ryder-Cheshire Foundation Vic Inc

Overseas Aid Fund - East Timor and India

RCF Vic is now raising funds to sponsor individual residents and patients at Raphael, the Ryder-Cheshire home in India, and 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 donation 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 RCF Vic reaches the people who are sick and disabled, in our homes.

100% of all funds donated to RCF Vic reaches the people who are sick and disabled, in our homes.

What we do:

The Ryder-Cheshire Foundation Victoria Inc.(RCF Vic), is dedicated to the relief of suffering among people who are sick, disabled and destitute, without regard to race, religion, age or gender.

Run entirely by volunteers, there are also branches in the ACT, NSW and SA, which are linked with Victoria through a national association, Ryder-Cheshire Australia.

Key Areas of Expenditure

Support a home at Dehra Dun in northern India, which cares for 300 people with chronic disease and disability including tuberculosis and leprosy, and their children; and increasingly those with intellectual disability. It runs a community based rehabilitation outreach program for children with disabilities, in rural villages.
Support a home in East Timor which looks after fifty low dependency patients to help reduce the overcrowding in Dili Hospital. It now cares for malnourished children, people with tuberculosis and other chronic illness, and those awaiting and recovering from surgery. It provides permanent accommodation for eight people who are aged and disabled.
Additional special projects in East Timor include:
  • A rehabilitation program for post-surgical patients.
  • A mobile TB Unit.
  • Community based rehabilitation outreach for children with disabilities in rural villages.
