The mission of Ryder-Cheshire Australia  is

                             . . .  to relieve suffering without discrimination.


Ryder-Cheshire Australia (RCA) supports homes in India, Australia and Timor-Leste. Separately incorporated Foundations in NSW, South Australia and Victoria operate autonomously and there are three regional Support Groups.  Overall policy is co-ordinated by the RCA Board which meets several times a year.  It also convenes a Biennial Conference for all supporters. Cheshire & Baby  RCA, its Foundations and Support Groups are run entirely by volunteers at all levels,  ensuring 100% of  all donations reach the intended recipients  and programs.  It is an organisation that is making a real difference to the lives of people who are sick, have a disability, or are destitute; with a proven record of achieving its goals for over fifty years.
