Sponsor the care giving expenses of a mentally challenged child for a month, INR 1125


Sri Arunodayam is an NGO that undertakes care and rehabilitation of orphaned and abandoned mentally-challenged children. Their aim is to provide a safe environment where these children have access to their basic rights of protection, education, healthcare and a happy childhood.

How It Works

• They take care of several children who are mentally-challenged.
• These children have been abandoned by their parents in public places such as railway stations, hospitals and bus stands.
• They have then been rescued by Child Line India Foundation or the police and are sent to Sri Arunodayam for care and rehabilitation.
• The organisation has appointed care mothers who care for these children.
• These care mothers are well-trained to take care of mentally and physically challenged children.
• Most of the children are bedridden and are unable to look after their personal needs.
• So the care mothers look after them, clean them, feed them and nurture them.
• They also attend to the children when they are admitted in the hospital.
• This donation will enable Sri Arunodayam to provide affectionate care and support to mentally challenged children.


• 100 – Total number of mentally challenged children at Arunodayam

Giving Care
All our children are abandoned on the streets due to poverty and disability by their parents. They are all rescued by the child line staff and the police department and are referred to us by the child welfare committees for care and rehabilitation. We admit the children into our shelter and our team will assess the needs of our children
Our care givers provide the care round the clock. Most of our children are severely disabled and are depend on us for their needs. Our care mothers are trained to take care these children. They stay with the children. They clean them daily, put clothes, groom them daily and feed them. They also attend the children in the hospitable if the child gets sick and admitted in the hospital.
As of now we are taking care of 107 children. Out of 107 there are 60 children need to be fed daily by the care givers. They are totally depended. Our care mothers are trained to monitor regular medicines under the supervision of a nurse. They are doing the duty of their real parents.
