Chennai, TN.

Dear All,

I and our IS Member Jeyaseeralan along with Dhanasekar had visited the “Sri Arunodayam Charitable Trust” (A Home for Mentally Challenged Destitute & Spastic Children) on 25th November 2007 and discussed with Ms. Chitra (one of the founder of this home) and understood their current basic needs.

We are planning to provide all the above required things (or) part of their above needs based on the money collected and issue to them on 16th December 2007 at 11am.
Note: This Program is neither organized nor funded by India Sudar Educational & Charitable Trust.
About Sri Arunodayam Charitable Trust: Sri Arunodayam is the brain child of Sri. Ayyappan (who was the founder of this home) along with his sister Chitra. These children are either mentally retarded or spastic and abandoned by their family. A 24 hour helpline along with the support of the Police network direct such children from different parts of the country to find refuge in the loving hands of Sri Arunodayam.
Sri Arunodayam provides them food, clothing, shelter and medical facilities with the warmth of a home. These children are engaged in varied activities depending upon their abilities and imparted education, which gradually enables them to outgrow their limitations. This helps to improve the quality of life to a certain extent.
