Our Nutrition Centre ..,

The Nutrition Centre, caring for abandoned malnourished infants, was inaugurated in 1980. It presently cares for 20 infants from 4 weeks to 3 years and is assisted by International Children’s Aid, Australia.

These ‘UNWANTED’ infants are often found abandoned in drains, under shrubs, on the sea – shore, etc. When found, they are handed over to the Police by a good Samaritan, who then hands them over to the State Receiving Home functioning under the Government Department of Probation and Childcare. They then, through a  Magistrates’s order send the child to our Nutrition Centre. By this time the child is in a very poor state! No sooner we receive the child, it is medically attended to and we continue to care till it is in a proper and good state of health. This normally takes 2-3 years.
