During a recent trip to India, four of the Heal UK trustees (Dr Prasad, Mr Carl Brodie, Mr Matthew Glover and Mr Mario D’Andrea) made real progress with helping create a new structure for Heal India.
The new Heal India team will be lead by our new Heal India President – Mr Ramavtar Yadav .
Ram has recently retired from his position as Director General of Police for the Andhra Pradesh region, and is now dedicated to use his time for Heal’s cause – looking after orphaned and destitute children. He is focussed upon building a strong future for Heal, and has helped create a strong Heal India team.
The new structure of Heal India is as follows:
Mr Ramavtar Yadav – President
Dr K Jagan Mohan Rao – Vice President
Mr GDV Prasada Rao – Treasurer
Dr N Manga Devi – General Secretary
Mrs O Vijayalaxmi – Sponsorship Secretary
Mr Nitin Kumar – Head of Public Relations
Mrs Anita Rao – Member
Heal India Youth
Mr Kushal Kashyap – Member
Mr Ajay Suri
With this new structure in place Heal is now in a position to further expand its projects with the goal of helping to remove as many children as possible from the cycle of poverty.
Already, Heal has agreed to support a school in Kanuru in Vijayawada. The existing team of staff and teachers have been doing an excellent job with limited finances and resources. Heal will adopt this school under the poverty trap looking after 355 children. We will invest in more teachers, science laboratory, computer lab, new books etc.
We are keen to continue to support and invest in all our current projects, including our flagship project – the Heal Childrens Village in Guntur.
