Update #1

To honor her legacy, we are partnering with Shepherd Films to make a documentary on Dr. Ida Scudder and CMC Vellore. The film will be produced by Mr. Aneesh Daniel, best known for his award-winning film ‘The Least of These – the Graham Staines Story’. The Project team has been working intensely on pre-production. Filming will commence next week. We hope to release the first episode of the film in early 2024. The subsequent episodes will tell the story of Dr. Ida’s co-workers, and pioneering leaders and highlight the contributions of CMC.
