LADAKH RELIEF & HEALTH INC
Ladakh Relief was created by the Members of Health Inc as a direct consequence of the devastating floods of August 2010. Health Inc has been working in Ladakh since 1992, focusing its work on community-driven development in the remotest villages of this beautiful, mountainous area.
While our focus is mostly on issues of health, environment and literacy, our programs are designed and implemented by the beneficiaries themselves. If the people are concerned about disabled children, we work with them to address this need.
HI has no paid staff, our members volunteer time to help their home villages or areas of their concern and expertise. Most projects partner with the local government, insuring sustainability and allowing us to reach up to 250,000 Ladakhis and Kargilis in a territory over two times larger than the Netherlands.
Ladakh Relief partners with Ladakhi government offices. We hope these partnerships will develop into on-going, government programmes.
For example, our Relief Trauma Counseling is directed by HI members who worked in a 3-year Mental Health Project based out of the District Hospital. Counseling will become another service offered there. We may one day leave Ladakh, but the Government of India never will.
Health Inc is a Registered Charity in the State of Jammu and Kashmir and works with the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council and registered charities in Austria, Canada, India, the UK and the USA.
To date, Ladakh Relief has raised and spent a total of IRS 12.66 lakhs, or the approximate equivalent of US $28,700. Referring to the pie chart above, the green and yellow combined are funds for infrastructure (51%); and 46% was spent on social services projects.(3% on admin and equipment)
We want to thank our funders who sent money to us through HART (UK), Omprakash and CFGM (USA), MATCF (Canada) and HEALTH Inc (India).
