We are small group of like minded people who are keen to make a difference to the underprivileged communities in developing countries. We have carried out projects in India over the past six years. Our work has included setting up a free eye camp, an artificial prosthetic limb camp and numerous road safety awareness campaigns. Our aspirations are to extend our work to other under privileged communities in developing countries. We would welcome collaboration with other charitable organisations working towards similar goals.

In 2014, we extended our work to Africa and fully funded three projects: treatment for eye related problems; work with the local Leprosy community and the local Albino community.

About 80% of the funding for these projects has so far come from our team members, close friends, relatives and musical functions we have arranged. Most members of our team have full time commitments but take time out to facilitate this work. Every penny goes towards treatment because we provide for our provisions, including flights, food, hotels, etc.

We have so far set up eye camps in India and Africa, prothetic limb replacement camps and carried out a road safety campaign with the help of local police in several areas of India. 

To date we have funded well over 2500 cataract operations, provided limbs for over 1500 people and spend well in the access of £6000.00 on road safety related projects; o
ur attempt has been to look at preventative measures because many people are killed or injured in India due to road accidents- resulting pollution from motor vehicles also leads to respiratory problems.

Ekom hopes to continue work in these streams and encourage better traffic management, pollution control and encourage sustainability through various initiatives such as walking and cycling.
