A message from Dr. Jack, Calcutta Rescue’s Founder

In all our work since 1980 we have never had to cope with anything like the present Covid crisis. The virus is widespread in Kolkata, and the repeated lockdowns have made it impossible for many to earn a living. I ask all our supporters in the UK to donate to the Kolkata Covid Peak Challenge appeal, so that Calcutta Rescue can help to meet the new challenges. Please donate as generously as possible now. 

May God bless you all. 
Dr Jack (Founder, Calcutta Rescue)
