Our Mission

Our mission is to build, equip and fund a 350 bed hospital at the Indian Christian Mission Centre Orphanage in Salem, Tamil Nadu, India.St Patrick’s Mission Hospital aims to serve the needs of those who cannot afford medical help – especially local villagers, hill tribes and the children living at the orphanage.

Well done and thank you to all who have donated – we have raised £250,000 and the building is complete. Now we need YOUR HELP to raise £150,000 to complete Phase Three – outfitting the interior electrics, plumbing, tiling, plastering and painting.
