Cappuccino Mudcatter's CD's Part 2 (16) RE: Mudcatter's CD's Part 2 06 Aug 02

Hi, John from Hull, thanks for the interest.

We are Health help International, a big name for about 6 of us. We establish, staff, and equip clinics in parts of remote Zambia where people may be hundreds of miles from the nearest hospital, and may never have met a doctor in their lives. We pay for their healthcare when necessary if they have to be taken into a hospital, and we establish similar resources - we've just founded two schools for the deaf, as deaf children are 'the forgotten ones' in Zambia. (No use sending them a CD, then!)

In Nedumangad, India, we support a former worker for Mother Theresa, who works among the very poor, and who tells us of severe medical cases needing attention... sometimes the cost of treatment will be many times what they would earn in a lifetime. He gets them into hospital, we pay for it.

Nobody in the charity takes any money or expenses... so the CDs are paid for by the musicians.

Thanks for being interested! - Ian B
