City of Joy Aid, UK
City of Joy Aid, UK was formally established as a charity in 2000 by the French author Dominique Lapierre and his wife, following the enormous success of his book and film about the indomitable spirit of the poor of Calcutta: "The City of Joy". The charity works in conjunction with the French association "La cite de la joie de Dominique Lapierre" and both are dedicated to helping some of India’s most underprivileged people. City of Joy Aid, UK's particular focus is Udayan - a home providing medical care, schooling and vocational training for children affected by leprosy. Because Udayan was founded by an Englishman, the UK charity has a particularly close relationship with it and the 300 or so children cared for there. But Udayan is only one of eight humanitarian aid centres forming part of a network of NGOs, clinics, schools, rehabilitation centres and hospital boats in and around Calcutta.
