Challenge

In and around Madurai there are many villages with homeless, sick, abandoned elderly people. Aishwaryam rescues and treats them here. These people are unable to work and take care of themselves, on top of which their health conditions, sometimes terminally ill makes it even more challenging.

Solution

Aishwarayam established Nethravathi Pain, Palliative care and Rehabilitation center to treat patients and address their hospice needs in Madurai. Some of the patients are terminally ill due to disease, some being elderly with no family to care for, some are homeless and rescued by members of Trust, and some have been admitted by family members when they are unable to take care due to poverty.

Long-Term Impact

Aishwaryam aims to reduce pain in many peoples' lives in Madurai, especially the less fortunate, abandoned and sick elderly. The trust hopes to improve the health and conditions of people in nearby villages and help people become aware of ways to live clean and healthy through their medical camps. The community has started to bring the elders to this center instead of abandoning them. The trust hopes to encourage that loving and caring attitude and be able to accommodate these new patients b
