Creating opportunities, transforming lives
Calcutta Rescue works to significantly enhance the well-being, learning and living standards of the poorest communities in and around Kolkata. It only works in areas of high need where there is inadequate provision by government, non-profit or private organisations.
It initiates alliances and work collaboratively with others to ensure delivery of quality services to these communities. It also provides specialist healthcare assistance for impoverished people approaching Calcutta Rescue from other districts where such services are deficient.Show More
About The Founder
Dr. Jack Preger MBE
British physician, Dr. Jack Preger, began his work on the pavements of Kolkata 40 years ago, and established Calcutta Rescue as a registered Society in 1991.
Calcutta Rescue (CR) is an Indian charity providing health care and education to the people who are economically most disadvantaged and socially most disfavoured in Kolkata and West Bengal. British physician, Dr. Jack Preger, began his work on the pavements of Kolkata 40 years ago, and established Calcutta Rescue as a registered Society in 1991. Since then it has grown to over 150 Indian employees serving over 17,000 impoverished and destitute people through our health clinics and providing education and nutrition to over 650 children in our two education centres. In addition, our arsenic-free filters ensured that 12 villages could access clean drinking water; and our Handicrafts project provided a livelihood to 40 poor individuals.
The particular strength of CR has been to focus onthe people who are helped by none and to “rescue” people from the consequences of ill-health, illiteracy and poverty. This includes providing good healthcare, quality education for children and development of skills which would ultimately lead to employment opportunities and a stable income.Show More
