Historically these Support Groups were set up, mostly in regional centres, to raise awareness of Ryder-Cheshire’s mission “ the relief of suffering” and to seek donations and sponsorships for residents in Raphael, India for their health and education.
More recently, Support Groups also sponsor health and disability programs at Klibur Domin in Timor-Leste.
These Support Groups enlist people and groups to take on sponsorships to support the residents and programs at Raphael and Klibur Domin and to undertake fund raising events for the same purpose.
