About Calcutta Rescue
Calcutta Rescue is a registered non – governmental organization (NGO) operating in Kolkata and some parts of rural West Bengal for over three decades serving the most socially and economically disadvantaged people of the region – regardless of gender, age, caste or religion.
Although India is a rising power today, the harsh reality of poverty and deprivation cannot be ignored. In Kolkata and areas of rural West Bengal itself, almost 4 million people live below the poverty line and some 2.5 million people live on the streets and slums scattered across the city. Thus, Calcutta Rescue was established to meet the most basic needs of these poor and downtrodden, providing free medical care, education, benefits and vocational training for increasing income generation opportunities.
Calcutta Rescue will continue and develop its 32 – year programme of essential help to people living in the harsh conditions of poverty in Kolkata and other areas of West Bengal. We will provide free health care, education and ways of combating poverty until people who are disadvantaged and neglected achieve universal and best possible healthcare together with full educational opportunities for their children.
