We devote all resources to help the mentally ill roadside destitute that are invariably ignored, Shunned, Unfed, Unclothed, Un cared by people, and are separated from their families. More than 10,000 of these patients are to be found aimlessly wandering in the metropolis of Kanyakumari District alone.
Rehabilitation of Mentally - ill Roadside Destitute's
An indigenously adapted approach by Mr.Manikandan well suited for rehabilitation for roadside destitute's, Which combines a compassionate approach to socialization, occupational engagement, & professional medical intervention. This approach is located in idyllic surroundings and an open field environment and provides rehabilitation through occupational participation in a range of agriculture, vegetable cultivation, dairy farming and other activities so that the institution produces what it consumes, treats the mentally ill with dignity, simultaneously preserving or building daily living skills.

A suitable building was rented at Rameswaram, very near the Railway Station and altered to be able to house 60 mentally ill men. MANOLAYA – Rameswaram was declared opened on 17th November, 2017 by Shri. iLa. Ganeshan, MP of Rajya Sabha at a grand inaugural function. 29 destitute men were rescued on that day from the streets. Helping the staff were a team of cured mentally ill persons from MANOLAYA – Kanyakumari. The rescued men were thoroughly cleaned, provided with new clothes, and given a luxurious meal before being accommodated at MANOLAYA. A capable team of staff are caring for them.
