Funding PBK Residential Childcare Centre for Girls

PBK Residential Child Care Centre was established as a residential child care centre to protect the childhoods and rights of girls living in the red-light area of Kolkata.

Your donations to Pranic Healing for HOPE ensures that vulnerable children are supported with the necessary care for their development, and the restoration of their lost childhoods. These daughters of sex workers are stigmatized, under-privileged and marginalized in terms of social, political, and economic status within India.

PBK Residential Child Care Centre provides a safe refuge to them while ensuring rights of survival, education, development and protection.

The Pranic Healing for HOPE family and supporters are passionate about this very special cause and have committed to fund this project on an annual basis. Over the past 3 years, they have raised in excess of €150,000 – which is simply phenomenal – to support this programme.

Despite the incredibly challenging times of the Covid pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the Pranic Healing for HOPE group raised an incredible €30,000 for PBK Child Care Centre – well in advance of, and exceeding, their fundraising target timeline.

Pranic Healing for HOPE have also raised substantial funds for HOPE’s COVID-19 Emergency Response campaign throughout 2021 – providing for example, funds to cover the cost of purchasing 5 cardiac monitors for use in HOPE Hospital in Kolkata.

For more information on this incredible project please contact pranichealingforhope@hopefoundation.ie.

Everyone at HOPE is eternally grateful to the Pranic Healing for HOPE family of supporters for their incredible hard work, dedication, leadership, generosity and care shown to these most vulnerable children and communities in Kolkata.

Your efforts are changing lives every day – thank you!
