There are several great initiatives that will benefit from your generous donations, and you can choose how you would like to support PPES.
COVID – 19 Appeal
The funds raised for this appeal will be used for oxygen related equipment, medication, testing kits, hospital expenses, food ration kits, health kits, transportation and other necessities benefiting the rural Indian communities during this difficult time. If you think that there is a shortage of oxygen supplies, ventilators and hospital beds in big cities, just imagine the plight of those in the many rural villages of India. Pardada Pardadi continues to look after the community of 120 villages they support, with the aim of providing them with the care they so desperately need. You can make a difference by donating to this vital cause today!
Sponsor the education of a girl
Girls can enrol at the age of 3, and each girl receives free uniform, free transport, free education, and 3 free meals per day. Girls graduate at the age of 18. The cost of educating one girl is
- One year £360
- Five Years is £1950*
- Nine Years is £3,900*
* The costs for 5 years and 9 years includes inflationary assumptions
Donate towards the HPV Vaccine
The HPV vaccination helps prevent the development of cervical cancer in women. Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers to occur in women and is the cause of many cancer-related deaths each year. In the UK, Europe and many other countries, girls and boys at the ages of 12 and 13 years are administered the vaccination as part of the national health programme. In India, the HPV vaccine is not a part of the national immunisation programme. At a cost of approximately Rs5600 per child, the vaccine remains prohibitive to most women and girls from poor households. By donating towards this initiative, you are giving these girls a chance to be free from the risk of cervical cancer, and thus the opportunity to have a brighter future and a longer life.
