Situated in Dehradun, Raphael was founded by renowned humanists, Lord Leonard Cheshire, and his wife Baroness Sue Ryder in April 1959. In the more than 50 years of its existence, Raphael has offered its services in varied areas for the relief of suffering.
They have worked with people suffering from Leprosy, Tuberculosis, and Intellectual impairment, touching more than 22,000 lives in the process. Leprosy cured patients and intellectually challenged residents are also encouraged to work in their Rehabilitative Workshop, for which they are remunerated accordingly. Apart from running a school and shelter home for their students, they also have a Community based rehabilitation project, as part of which they work with children in government schools.
Once the students in their residential home grow up, they are encouraged to live in a home environment under the supervision of a house parent, while they attend classes at the day center. This helps prepare them for independent living in the community.
