2016 Bike Ride Report

After a day at the New Hope Community Centre in Kothavalsa (North Andhra Pradesh) the Bike Ride Team and Indian support group went by scenic train to the hill station at Araku. 22 Tunnels and still a very typical non tourist train with vendors getting on and off the train with fruit, sweets, tea and shoe shines.

In 2012 the Foundation asked New Hope Rural Leprosy Trist to take over its management as they could not arrange funds for its upkeep and the administration problem bearing in mind that GMLF is based in Wardha, Maharashtra State

Maggie Nolan McMullen, OAM – Patron, Founder Member *RIP – 24th September, 2019. She was an inspirational woman who has devoted much of her life to helping the sick and poor in India. Maggie Sister was the founder Trustee and Patron of “New Hope India Relief Australia Inc and a Trustee of New Hope Rural Leprosy Trust India”. She lived and worked from the idyllic town of Broome Western Australia, but her life’s work took her far from that setting. The grandmother of three was known as Maggie Sister, a name given to her by the people with whom she worked in the Indian regions of Western Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. New Hope has TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION STATUS in Australia. We are hoping now that business people and you our supporters will have tax relief when donating to us.
