The Future and What You Can Do to Help

For more than 50 years, many individuals and organisations have supported Raphael in its vital humanitarian work and have helped to bring hope and dignity into the lives of thousands of marginalised people.

There is still an enormous demand for services, accommodation and care for people with illnesses and disabilities in India and Raphael will continue in its essential role in helping to meet this need. You can assist Raphael by becoming a sponsor, donor, volunteer or leaving a bequest.

Raphael Sponsorship Scheme– sponsors can contribute $365 a year ($1 per day) to sponsor either a Raphael resident, a TB bed in the hospital, the Specialised Day Programs or the Community Based Rehabilitation Program. Sponsorship payments are tax deductible and amounts can be varied to suit sponsors.

Donations – donations of any amount can be made to support Raphael and are tax deductible.

Bequests – you may leave a gift in your will to support Raphael.

To become a sponsor, make a donation or leave a bequest, please follow the links on the home page of Ryder-Cheshire Australia.
