Our partners and donors are our strongest pillars. Udayan has been able to bring a difference in the lives of several children from leprosy colonies. And this has been possible only with the continued support and faith of our supporters. In the last quarter too, we made some encouraging progress and express our heartfelt gratitude to our donors and partners.
Huge thanks to St. Joan of Arc School in the UK and City of Joy Aid, UK for their timely financial support to construct the 900/8 ft. boundary wall - which was profusely damaged by cyclone 'Amphan' in May 2020. The cyclone uprooted many trees, electric poles, caused flooding and damaged the many properties in North 24 Parganas, West Bengal.
The rebuilding of the boundary wall started on 26th July 2020 and was completed on 24th March 2021 - now all our children are safe within the newly built, strong campus walls!

We are happy to announce that Friends of Udayan Australia had launched the “Dog Bandana Project” to raise funds for three leprosy colonies in West Bengal. 100% of proceeds from the bandana sales would go into funding small rooms with supervision facilities for preschoolers in these leprosy colonies. During the Covid-19 lockdown in Australia, Deborah Bedford, a staunch supporter of Udayan, launched some exclusive dog bandanas, made with the help of her school-going granddaughters. The machine-sewed bandanas were in beautiful colours and each piece was exclusive. ‘FRIENDS OF UDAYAN AUSTRALIA’ labels were sewn onto each one and would be a perfect gift for your loved pet! The bandanas were priced at $15 each and a total of $250 was raised from the sale.
