About Chandi Heffner


As the founder and President of the CDH International Fund, Chandi Heffner manages a nonprofit organization that directly impacts the lives of more than 80,000 people and 50,000 animals in India each year. Chandi Heffner’s organization is one of India’s most important nongovernmental organizations, providing free medical care, cultural programs, and community development initiatives to hundreds of villages in North India. 

Although her organization is perhaps best known for the free medical services it provides to people and animals throughout rural India, Ms. Heffner is also dedicated to keeping alive the area’s traditional arts and crafts. To this end, she funds music and dance programs to locals. The organization also employs wood and stone carvers to carry on the ancient carving traditions native to the region. Under one program, artisans employed by Ms. Heffner helped restore a small palace. Other programs include performing arts competitions with cash prizes, and athletic contests.

In addition to medical and cultural programs, the nonprofit group provides housing and shelter for hundreds of families, support for widows and pilgrims, and financial assistance for the funerals of those unable to pay for proper services. 

The CDH International Fund, which was founded by Chandi Heffner in 1998, is funded by a 501(c)(3) organization. The Fund is registered in New Jersey, based in India, and managed entirely by unpaid volunteers. The staff of doctors, veterinarians, and support professionals is paid from donations and Ms. Heffner’s personal funds. 

Although her work with the CDH International Fund keeps her busy in rural India for 10 months every year, Chandi Heffner still finds time to volunteer with other charities, and she is especially devoted to groups that support horses and dogs.
