For the past 22 years through the Karunai illam Charitable Trust we are running an orphanage at Madambakkam, Chennai District South India. In the month of March 1996, we started the Karunai illam Charitable Trust with 10 children (6 Boys & 4 Girls). Over the last two decades, 80 children are staying in Karunai illam Charitable Trust (48 Boys & 32 Girls). These children are taken care of with the help (contributions and donations) from the friends, families and well wishers of the Karunai illam Charitable Trust.
Karunai illam means "Mercy Home". We are admitting children regardless of caste, creed of Religion. children's are admitted from various categories like orphans, semi orphan, destitute and under privileged children's. Our motivation is " Each Children should stand their own leg in future". We are providing children primary requirements of food, shelter, education, health care and whatever they need to grow.
The vision and mission of the trust are being centered around charitable services to the deprived elders and destitute children, to provide them shelter, food and a peaceful environment and need based social welfare activities.
