At present, we are able to accommodate about 400 mentally disabled persons taken from the streets. They include men and women. The mental patients are given the best medical treatment with the help of Government Hospitals. Apart from the existing 400 inmates, the Samithi was able to send back home about 600 persons who had fully recovered from illness.
It was started on 15th August 1998 at Mayyanad , 15 kms away from Kollam city. Registered as a public charitable trust. We promote the social, economical and health care status of the most marginalized, neglected, mentally retarded and physically handicapped down trodden people.
