The total exenditure on medicine, surgey, investigations (blood test, xray, ultrasound, CT scanning including MRI scanning) was about £16,000 in 2010.
The cash was raised from donations in India and the UK
Accomodation: Over the years we have stayed at a number of hotels. We negotiate a reduced rate for accommodation (approx £30 (Normal = £60) per night) for an on-suite room at a hotel . All volunteers pay for their own accommodation, food and flight. The total cost to a volunteer is about £1200 in total
Final Day dinner. One meal at the end of the Camp is paid for by the organising team (with their own money. Money is not taken from donations for this purpose)
The camp is no Holiday. We do help arrange visits to places of interest once the work has been done. Visits have been arranged to the India Pakistan Border, The golden temple in Amritsar, The Taj Mahal, Delhi and to a IPL cricket match.
