Appeal from an XLer 90batch - Sam Placid

I am forwarding a mail from Placid Sam of 90batch (samplacid[at]rediffmail[dot]com)
"I wanted to let you know that I have been supporting a charity for the past 5 years which helps children of lepers(they are probably among the most ostracised class in India)get a chance for a better life.We provide hostel accommodation for these children along with food,clothing and medicines.It is managed by an uncle of mine who also happens to be a priest(though he has no love lost for the traditional church and I suspect they reciprocate the same feelings).We currently have 300 kids(boys and girls) and also run a school from the same premises for these children.

We are now trying to build a school building as without a proper and separate building the UP govt.authorities will not grant recognition and without recognition these kids will not be allowed to write the board exams.

Is there any possibility that we can raise some funds for this thru the XL network or thru similar organisations like the MFF?

I do not normally talk about this work and would prefer to do this quietly.

The name of the charity is NAYEE ASHA and all contributions are income tax deductible.
