We celebrate the 149th Anniversary of Dr (Aunt) Ida S. Scudder on December 9th each year (December 9, 1870 – May 23, 1960) was a third-generation American medical missionary in India of the Reformed Church in America. She dedicated her life to the plight of Indian women and the fight against bubonic plague, cholera and leprosy as well as other ailments from a donkey cart to a one cylinder car and her legacy continues today at the Christian Medical College in Vellore India.  Please join us in our continued support of the medical facilities in Vellore, Ranipet, and the rural villages by supporting our Philanthropy  projects.
