"Friends of CMC Vellore" is an international network of people who support the work of the Christian Medical College Vellore through their prayer, giving, counsel and other contributions. There are organised groups of CMC Friends in several different countries – see the links to the left, which take you to their individual websites. They are all registered charities set up to support the work at CMC. They conduct social programmes and fundraising activities, and pray for the work in India. If you wish to donate in one of these countries, you can make use of tax-deductible giving schemes in each country, thus ensuring that your donation goes further. You can contribute to the projects selected by the national body, and usually you can also give directly to other projects in Vellore that you wish to support. If your country doesn’t have a group, you can join in India, and we will keep you in touch with the developments at the hospital. Membership is free. Just send an email to Mr. Hugh Skeil, firstname.lastname@example.org, requesting membership, and including your full name and mailing address. Or write to Hugh Skeil Development Office CMC Hospital, Vellore – 632 004. Tamil Nadu India.
