What are its aims?
Bhola’s Children was registered as a UK charity (no. 1118345) in March 2007. It was established to provide a permanent source of funding for the home and school for orphaned and disabled children at Bhola Garden which had been set up by Howlader Ali with assistance from an ad hoc group of individual donors.
The main aim of Bhola’s Children is to provide accommodation, education and medical treatment for disabled children on the island of Bhola.
The aim is to provide more than just funds. Many of the current donors take a close personal interest in the charity and seek to support the staff and children by keeping in regular touch by telephone and email, and visiting the island. Europeans on Bhola are a rare sight and it is hugely appreciated when they make the effort to go there – the welcome is tremendous.
