With gratitude to our donors
all our readers probably know our main donors are DIK, Deutsch Indishes
Kinderhilfswerk, a German association led by Chandran and Helga Tucker
from Koln. Thanks to them
we are not only able to cover the running expenses of the Health Centre,
with all the village programs, but also to improve our equipment.
With their last donation we purchased a new microscope for the
laboratory, an analyser as well as carrying out some badly needed repairs
and maintenance to the laboratory.
The main purchase, however, has been a car, which is used exclusively
for our village health programs.
We give them our heartfelt thanks for the extra donations that
allowed us to make these improvements to the Health Centre and for their
regular support and encouragement.
thanks go also to DWK in Germany as well as all the individual donors
who regularly help us. DIK
Germany put forward the idea of starting a ‘corpus fund’ for the Health
Centre which over a period of time will build up a capital sum which
will provide interest to cover part of our expenses.
If anyone would like to participate in helping us set up this
fund please send a cheque to the Auroville Health Centre mentioning
in the accompanying letter that the money is for the ‘corpus fund’.
look forward to the continued support of all our donors and thank everyone
who is participating with us in providing health services to the villages
received a donation from the Government of Navarra in Spain and the
Municipality of Pamplona for a digital video camera with all accessories,
lights, speakers and wires and collar microphones.
With this equipment we were able to make health education films
on road accidents, diarrhoea, garbage, suicide and other health related
issues. If anyone is interested in buying one of our videos the subjects
include: Tuberculosis, nutrition in children, pregnancy check ups, toilets,
scabies, polio, road accidents, diarrhoea, garbage and suicide.
Please email or write to us so we can send you details of cost
and arrangements for postage.
with the help of an Indian donor we have purchased all the necessary
equipment for editing. This
will make each video less expensive to make and will allow us to do
more in the future. We are very grateful to all our donors who have
made this work possible.
