This is our first newsletter which we hope will inform you about our current ambitious projects
in Cuddalore District, Tamil Nadu and forthcoming fundraising events.

To begin with, we have heard from Janet Bedford (founder Trustee) who has been in Tamil Nadu for the past six months. The first step that Janet and our Indian associates have taken is the purchase of two and a half acres of impoverished land which will be improved with vermi-culture as a preparation for sustainable organic farming. The farm will also be used to train local farmers in these methods.

A new project Janet has told us about involves village people utilising traditional herbs to make anti-viral and anti-fungal toothpowder. The income from this project will be used as seed money for additional local self-help enterprises.

The other piece of exciting news is that a building in the vicinity of Kalpoondi is being rented in order to set up an integrated medical clinic offering first aid, herbal and homeopathic medicine for poor local villagers. It is our intention to partially staff this facility with homeopathic graduates from Europe who wish to gain experience of tropical health problems, diseases and homeopathic keynote prescribing ( which is a useful method for
quick prescribing). We are pleased to report that our first homeopathic graduate volunteer, a practitioner from Denmark, Malena Vlarsen, recently completed a one-month intensive prescribing programme as part of the integrated medical clinics.

Jayaprakash Williams is in his first year of a homeopathic medical degree course which we are funding. When he has time he helps at CHATI clinics including a Christmas Day camp held in another village.

Needless to say, all of these ambitious projects require substantial funding and we are looking to our generous supporters and sponsors for additional donations. If you feel able to contribute, we have attached a donation and Gift Aid form. We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have supported and continue to support our work amongst some of the poorest people on earth.
