A tribute to Rod Yeoman


"Be the change you want to see in the world," urged Mahatma Gandhi.

Nowhere is this advice more evident than amongst the Supporters of Kamla Foundation, whose efforts bring the Foundation's mission to life.

We have been gifted with truly remarkable people who generously donate their time, expertise, and energy to help. One of them was Rod Yeoman, who spent a number of weeks managing some of our key programs in Tamil Nadu back in 2012.

On returning from India, Rod maintained a keen interest in the work of the Foundation and through our many meetings and discussions, I got to know Rod as a truly inspirational colleague and friend.

On behalf of Kamla Foundation I wish to pay tribute to a remarkable selfless, human being who touched the lives of the most vulnerable whilst out in India.

Sadly Rod was diagnosed with cancer early this year and at the age of just 62, passed away on 20th June 2013. We would like to place on record our sincere thanks for his outstanding dedication and service to the work of the Foundation and we will aim to build on his legacy.

One of Rod's final wishes was to have a memorial bore well giving fresh drinking water to some of the most vulnerable in Indian society. The Yeoman family would like to celebrate the life of an amazing and much-missed man by picking up where he left off.
