FIBIS Cemeteries Project

16 Jun | News,

FIBIS has hired a photographer who is currently visiting cemeteries in India and taking two photographs of every gravestone: one of the whole and one of the inscriptions. Mindful that many Indian cemeteries are in a dilapidated condition that is only going to deteriorate further, we are looking for sponsorship to enable us to continue this important project.

In the meantime, the photographer is receiving from FIBIS a modest fee and necessary expenses for travel. Therefore, if you would like access to the original photographs we are asking for a suggested donation of £3 (Three pounds sterling) for one image or £5 (Five Pounds sterling) for both.
