Dindigul, Chengalpattu, Chennai, Vellore, Pondicherry
Where dying people from the streets are picked up, nurtured and given a HOME to live in.
We admit only dying destitutes abandoned by families and friends. There is no caste, color, sex or age distinction.
We have a dedicated staff of 24 young women and men who make all the difference to this place. A doctor visits us once a fortnight and is on call anytime.
We run this place entirely on public charity with no government subsidy whatever. We recycle everything here and convert waste into energy
Our mission is to give human dignity to those who otherwise die on the pavements, in bus stations , railway stations and other public places, abandoned by family and friends, and left to die like animals without any human dignity .
Our intention is to give unsolicited love and care for those neglected by family and friends and thrown on the dust heap of our society by giving them a protected accommodation, a soft bed to lie on, with basic medicine, with a proper bath and clean cloth and three square meals every day.
In last five years, more than 4,200 people have been healed and restored and have gone back to their places of choice. To date 1179 people have died in peace.
