  • We have installed a Physiotherapy Centre & regularly help them in medical supplies, clothes, beds etc. Beddings / clothes get soiled and these have to be provided
  • One of our members with some assistance from us has installed solar Water heating system – a large cost saving measure. Solar power unit is planned to be installed depending on fund availability. Cipla the Pharmaceutical Co. has funded the New Toilets being built. Industrial washing machines are urgently needed for occupants soiled clothes.
  • Through our effort, a bore well has been dug, saving this Home a lot of money annually.

    Why not keep them occupied? So one member initiated a Kitchen Garden Activity Many of our members have volunteered to feed them & this takes care of their food bill for several days. Some prefer anniversaries of their loved ones.
