Two women are dancing for joy in the middle of Calcutta Rescue’s TB clinic, surrounded by patients wearing green masks to prevent the spread of this potentially fatal disease.

What We Do
Calcutta Rescue (CR) is a non – governmental organization (NGO) operating in Kolkata and parts of rural West Bengal for over three decades, supporting with free medical care, education and development to the poorest and most disadvantaged people of Kolkata and rural West Bengal irrespective of gender, age, caste, or religion.
Although India is a rising power today, the harsh reality of poverty and deprivation cannot be ignored. In Kolkata and areas of rural West Bengal itself, almost 4 million people live below the poverty line and some 2.5 million people live on the streets and slums scattered across the city. Thus, Calcutta Rescue was established to meet the most basic needs of these poor and downtrodden, providing free medical care, education, benefits and vocational training for increasing income generation opportunities.
