Donate to Christian Medical College Vellore

This year, CMC celebrates 120 years of service. In 2020, we appeal to YOU and ask you to donate ₹200 (or multiples of ₹200!) towards our poor patients.

In memory of Ida Scudder, we want to reach out to one lakh compassionate people to raise ₹2 crore to support our poor patients. Your generosity can make all the difference for a poor patient at CMC. For those of you who live outside India one lakh people is 10,000 people and ₹2 crore is ₹20 million and about $400,000.

Read more about how we want to celebrate 120 of CMC Vellore in the #CMC2020 page.
