Calcutta Mercy

My husband, Terry, and I work as the national representative for Calcutta Mercy & Huldah Buntain raising funds and awareness ... and hope for the poor and sick of Calcutta, India.

In the autumn of 1954, a young missionary couple, Mark & Huldah Buntain, stepped off a ship into the "City of Joy" teeming with upwards of 18 million people. Only 9 miles long and four miles wide, Calcutta (now, renamed Kolkata) is severely overcrowded with thousands surviving in slums and on the streets. It has the highest rate in the world for pollution, disease and poverty.

Many migrate to Calcutta hoping for a better life, only to find conditions are similar if not worse than those they left behind.

Our prayer is for God to place us in the right place at the right time to connect with the right people for the right purpose.

If you feel moved to connect for a purpose to use your faith and your skills to make a difference, please contact me through this blog site or email.
