In any currency this is a substantial effort.

 

Acknowledgements:

 

Many persons have cared enough to put in a lot of work in raising funds. A very generous donation from Mr Neil D Hamilton of Paris, helped to initiate the "For Love of God - Hamilton Trust Fund" covering Seniors in Howrah and surrounding areas. We have a good effort in the UK and Australia and an excellent effort in Canada. In November Canada (Toronto) organized the fifth Tiljallah Relief Dinner Dance that resulted in a contribution of over $5,000CA. In addition many Canadian and US AI’s sponsor Loreto girls and Bow Bazaar children. In the US we raised over $20,000 from non-AI’s and AI’s. As we increase our commitments we need to develop more funding avenues.
