Making a Difference
The Mina Fund is dedicated to permanently improving the lives of disadvantaged children in India by providing opportunities for better education.
“Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. It saves children from being exploited as child labourers and gives them the ability to permanently improve their lives.”—Sarina MacKenzie
In addition, the Mina Fund supports community health initiatives through the Broadwell Christian Hospital in Fatehpur. Thanks to your generous support, in 2019 the Mina Fund exceeded our $5,000 infrastructure target to help Broadwell to build a life-saving orthopedic operating theatre and purchase cardiac monitors.

COVID-19 Special Funding Appeal
As of July 30, India has crossed the 1.5 million mark of COVID-19 cases, and they are currently adding 50,000 cases a day! 35,000 Indians have died.
The Mina Fund continues to help in any way we can—caring for people’s medical needs and looking out for the poor. The biggest need continues to be food for the families whose wage earners are out of work.
$27 Feeds a Family!
Just $27 buys a family of five enough food to feed them for a month—rice, flour, lentils, oil, spices, and other basics. They have nowhere else to go for help. Please click above to donate.
