Aid for India
Ashby Rotary Club has sent £1720 to Stella-Louise Hostel in Andhra Pradesh, India to buy two buffalo cows to increase their existing herd. The cows’ milk will be sold to help the Hostel’s bid to become self-sufficient.
Stella-Louise Hostel was set up by the Love and Share Charity in Hathern, Leicestershire to care for orphans and children from families which are unable to care for them. The hostel now cares for 120 children of both sexes.
Half of the money sent was raised by Ashby Rotary Club, whilst the remainder came from a matching grant from Rotary District 1070 which covers the East Midlands.
This latest contribution to buy two cows in calf will enable the hostel to move toward its aim of becoming self-sufficient
