Background: The Earth Saviours Foundation Inc is a charity dependent upon public and business donations to provide support to abused and destitute people. It runs a residential program for abandoned and destitute older people and a shelter for women who have been victims of sexual abuse and violence.
Mawson Lakes Rotary President Vineeta Dogra visited the residential facility in 2018 and was impressed with the charitable work undertaken there but saddened by the plight of the over 400 people who were in residence. There are now 500 residents.
The toilet and hygiene facilities were recently totally destroyed by torrential rains. The club has established a fund of $4,500 towards the rebuilding program. Total cost of the rebuild is in excess of $50,000. We will be approaching other clubs locally and in India, family and friends and members of the public for support.
Members of the club will visit India next year to see what progress has been made and to explore other opportunities to assist this community
