Cents of Relief is a wonderful, young, and energetic organization. I have seen those involved help grow their programs from the start and am excited to see what they will do in the future.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their updates that they provide to me via email. They are very good about sharing personal stories to really help us see the results of our donation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how dedicated the board members are. Thtey make every effort to keep donors and those involved that are interested personally updated. they provide personal attention to everyone involved.

VERY kind

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help raise more awareness and have more staff on the ground.

I have been involved with Cents of Relief since 2003 when Anup and Rina started with small fundraisers to support their projects. I am aware of the organizations true dedication to improving the health and lives of women and children in the red-light areas of india. Most recently, Cents of Relief created a Burn Comic book to help teach children in India about burn prevention. This comic was distributed in Mumbai schools with great success! The story of Lalit playing with fireworks is such a great way to help children understand how to keep themselves safe!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing first hand what the women and children have been able to learn. You can really see the results of the Cents of Relief programs when you speak with any of the volunteers or people hosting the programs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how personal it is. They really work to make sure all volunteers and donors can see what is going on with the programs first hand.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of most all of the women in Kolkata's red-lighta reas.

I have donated to this cause for over 6 years and witnessed it develop into an incredible organization aimed at women and children who are sold into sex trafficking/human slavery. Cents of Relief has made a tremendous impact on women and their children by constantly providing assistance programs in India. I have seen this organization's work firsthand as they provide constant updates about their ongoing projects. The project that heavily impressed me this year was the work they did for burn awareness. Cents of Relief created a burn comic that they distributed to individuals in the red-light areas. The clear illustrations and language has helped so many children cater to the burn wounds appropriately. I look forward to translating the burn comic into Urdu so that it can distributed more widely. This organization will continue to have my support as it helps so many women that cannot help themselves.

the burn awareness area. They have distributed burn comics in India that provide assistance to those who do not know how to cater to their wounds appropriately.
