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.

EVERY GOOD DAY STARTS WITH A GOOD BREAKFAST
Our humble beginnings started with an extraordinary event. In 1997, a postman delivered a parcel – an All Bran box containing £12,025 in cash! Along with a cryptic note saying “For church, for chapel, for Newport, for India.” Our founder, Ron Prosser, checked that the money was legit and began distributing it as instructed.
Over 20 years later, we are committed to our ethos of running entirely with volunteer labour in the UK, ensuring we maximise the money that is sent out to support our work overseas. All projects are suggested by local people, and are carried out in co-operation with them. Some we have started from scratch, others have been started by our overseas partners and we have come on board later, providing financial assistance and other help so as to help them continue, run better and expand.
