WE SUPPORT HEALTH DEVELOPMENT
In collaboration with the Siddhart United Social Welfare Mission of Kolkata, of India, we built an orphanage-hospital (Dr. Armando Hospital), in 2005 and successive years.
We also helped building the mixed school of Shingarpada in the District of Nasik (Maharashtra, Mumbai) in collaboration with the Maharashtra Prabodhan Seva Mandal, of Mumbai, India and along with the Spanish Jesuit Pedro Massanet S.J. In June 2015 is scheduled the opening of a nursing/health worker’s school on the first floor of the aforementioned school, recently constructed.
In addition to the technical and financial support in the cited works of Calcutta and Bombay, we contribute to the maintenance and support of students and facilities, to the extent we can, with the generosity of the Asturian people.
