Our Supporters

...

Since we began our work in 2003 we have been blessed with tremendous support from across the globe as well as from Kolkata. This support has been crucial in encouraging us to in our quest to improve the quality of life and a lost sense of dignity to the destitute elderly we strive to serve.
Our work at Madhubati was only made possible by the Late Debrani Mukherjee and her family and the generous donation of their property so that others less fortunate would experience the comfort of a loving home. Mrs. Mukherjee took much pride in what was achieved in her home which also had many memories of her youth. We are forever grateful to the Mukherjee family.
We will forever be grateful for the love and trust bestowed on us from the people of Ireland, especially Caherdavern Parish and Calcutta Calling both based in Limerick (Ireland), who played the vital role at the crucial time in turning a dream into a reality. Fr. Richard Davern and Caherdaven Parish showered their tremendous generosity on FOKE, allowing us to grow to where we are today.
The dreams to care for the elderly were fulfilled because of the unconditional support received from:

Concern India Kolkata’s support over the last 3 years ( till March 2016) for the running of the school in Madhubati ( Charunibash) is greatly appreciated as it has enabled us to press forward with implementing future plans in other aspects of our work.
There are several important individual donors and well wishers in Kolkata and abroad whose contribution is very much appreciated even if we have not mentioned their names here. We feel blessed to enjoy the confidence and support of so many and it is on your behalf that we strive to make each day a better day for all our elderly members and for those whom we serve.
Our management and staff are forever conscious of the glorious challenge and opportunity that confronts them on a daily basis and no greater reward is imaginable than seeing love transform that effort.
