CONCERT RAISES $25,000 FOR DEAF INDIA
Project Deaf India held its first fund raising program at the famous Robert B Moore Auditorium of Orange Coast College and raised over $25,000.
The show started with a “A Dance Journey Through Cultural India by the Mysore Nagaraj Group after a delicious buffet feast of Indian food.
The dance program included a Ganesh Stuti in the yakshagan style.
The charity, which was established in 1998 by retired
cancer specialist Dr Rajendra Desai with the help of the Rotary Club of Newport-Balboa and the Rotary Club of Mysore India, attracted a crowd of 700 for the three hour program. About 120 deaf persons enjoyed the program as well.
Funds from the Rotary Clubs and the Rotary International Foundation have provided a mobile detecting unit for early diagnosis of deafness, hearing aids for deaf children and the training of teaching Sign Language, Lip Reading and Speech.
The Dance Journey Through Cultural India was hosted by Victoria Avery, Past President of the Rotary Club of Mission Viejo, which also is a sponsor of Project Deaf India.
This program sponsors all India deaf children which will educate and rehabilitate them. With your continued support we can help the poor deaf children of India become self supporting and respectable citizens.
