Karunamaya Destitute Home - Khammam
The project is located at 4 km away from Khamam town, Karunagiri, Naidupet. It is situated in the premises of Bishop’s House Khammam. The land and building is donated by the Bishop of Khammam. Travel facilities to Khammam Railway Station and bus station are by Auto rickshaw (4 kilometers way from the home).
In the year 2010 we started a home for the old and sick grandmas at Khammam namely ‘Karunamaya Destitute Home’. 25 women are at present in the home though there are facilities for 30. The grandmas admitted in the home are from different areas of Andhra Pradesh. There 3 sisters are rendering their services. The inmates are totally dependent on others for their daily activities.
Our sisters take care of those who are left out & forsaken, render them all possible help without reservation and enable them to enjoy bliss & happiness. Most of them are from the street. Some brought with them the letters of police or Government authorities. Most of them are widows who have lost their husbands. The life of these elderly women has really pathetic and some were psychiatric cases. As many of them could not save anything during their working years due to poor economic conditions, now they have nobody to rely on.
