Helping Hands is a charity based in Adhanur, a village in Tamil Nadu State in India. The charity runs a home for 40 orphans and supports them and Dalit (low caste) families in their education and training for future employment. It was St Cuthbert’s overseas charity for 2018-19, and is supported by Durham Martyrs parish. At present, Helping Hands is in great difficulties. Their regular income has dried up because of the pandemic, and they are dependent on credit to meet the food and fuel bill for the home, which comes to about £840 per month. If you can give any support to Helping Hands, please send donations to St Cuthbert’s, and they will be forwarded to the charity in India.
