Friends of RDM in the UK took the opportunity to show off the colourful sari bunting when they met together for the 2017 annual meeting. The latest handcraft product from RDM proved very popular and has already been ordered for baptisms and weddings.
The Annual General Meeting of the RDM Parakkanvilai Fund was held in Evesham, Worcestershire, where the RDM founder, Dr Israel Selvanayagam, is serving as the Methodist Minister. Israel and Leela have returned to the UK after several years of ministry in India and the Friends were delighted to visit them in their new home.
The formal meeting of the RDM Parakkanvilai Fund trustees took place in the morning, completing the formal business required by the UK Charity Commission including the election of officers and the treasurer’s report. A detailed report from RDM’s activities this year reminded everyone present how valuable the work of RDM is to the community. A delicious lunch of home-cooked curry was followed by the annual meeting of the Friends of RDM, the wider network of supporters and fundraisers.
Anyone who is a friend or supporter of RDM is welcome to attend the annual meeting, even if you are not a trustee of the charity. If you are interested in attending in future, or just being on the mailing list, please contact us.
