In February 2019 I will be travelling to India with a group of chiropractors to provide chiropractic and basic medical care to labourers working as tea pickers and rock breakers.
We will be working in an area called the Siliguri Corridor, a stretch of humid, sub-tropical land wedged between Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan…with China just a short distance over the hill. The narrow strip of land is about 200km long and 17-60km wide and is home to over 50 million people.
This is the 13th trip into this area for “Hands on India” a charity that started in 2005 as a chiropractic service only and has expanded to provide funding for seven schools with over 700 children and to funding small loans to several Women’s Empowerment Groups so they can set up micro-industry and gain greater independence. Over 2800 women have been assisted so far.
As part of my participation I am expected to do some fund-raising and to this end I ask that you consider making a donation to this very worthwhile cause. All chiropractors and students pay their own expenses and 100% of all funds raised go directly to the clinics, schools and micro- economic projects with no administration costs subtracted!
With the festive season upon us and the indulgences associated with it I ask you to dig deep to share something with these people who have so little. You can donate through the Hands On India page here.
Yours in health
