Please join our effort to help Christian Medial College (CMC) build a maternity hospital in the Jawadhi Hills region of South India. The Scudder Association Foundation (SAF) is working to continue the legacy of Aunt Ida’s calling to provide desperately needed care for women in childbirth. As you know, Ida responded to the pleas of these women by dedicating her life to their care.
“On behalf of the institution, I wish to place on record our appreciation…we are overwhelmed at the efforts taken by you all to raise funds for the COVID work at CMC. This has definitely taken a huge pressure off us.”- Dr. J.V. Peter.
