Huldah Buntain

Founder

In 1954, Huldah with her husband and baby daughter, sailed from the US to Calcutta for a one-year mission commitment. That one year turned into 60 years, as Huldah founded Calcutta Mercy to provide the best care and services to the poor. Read more about Huldah’s journey here.
