The committee meets twice annually to pray and share news from the people, and discuss developments, of projects supported in North India. To consider grant applications from the dioceses of the Church of North India and USPG and to formulate and implement strategies to raise awareness and funds.
The DUMCN supports the work of the Church of North India in areas of extreme poverty and injustice. Most of the work supported is in the diocese of Chota Nagpur and Nasik. The DUMCN in partnership with USPG has been active in Chota Nagpur since 1891, building and supporting hospitals, schools, hostels and theological education. In Nasik the DUMCN is one of the main funders together with Bishops’ Appeal to relocate and build new hostels on the same site in Miri where the hostels started some 100 years ago. In Delhi the DUMCN support the night shelters, schools and hostels of the Delhi Brotherhood.
