Health Help International aims to improve the welfare of the less fortunate in our world

Providing help to both individuals and communities, our work is currently focussed in India and Zambia. Our projects are wide ranging, concentrating on health and education. From supplying infrastructure for hospitals and clinics and medical equipment to funding medical aid to those needing treatment. Schools and training centres are supported across these areas for both adults and children that have disabilities.

Our work in the UK is undertaken by a small number of volunteers, who not only give up their time and energy freely but also contribute financially to HHI’s work. This ensures all the money that is contributed by our supporters is distributed to our projects overseas.

Raised so far

HHI is 25 years young this year and to celebrate we are launching
‘The Choongo Challenge!’

The Choongo Challenge aim is to raise £25,000 to provide a second dormitory block to relieve the chronic overcrowding that disabled children face.
These children, board at the Special Needs Unit Choongo School – due to their family homes being far away. The present block, shared by both boys and girls, is so crowded that children are having to share beds.
They share their story in a couple of videos, please take the time out to watch them.

We have made a good start – our team in Strathaven have said that the £6,000 raised on their behalf by the Round Strathaven 50 cycle event can be used for this.

With other donations we have received you can see from the bar that we are getting closer to our target.

Only £6,588 to go! Can you help? If so, please donate here or send us a cheque or bank transfer. We will require 7,000 bricks, so £4 will enable us to buy the equivalent of one brick, £20 six bricks, £50 for a door, £200 for the plumbing, £600 for the electrics, £1,000 for the foundations or £3000 for the roof.
