Gandhibhavan located on the banks of Kallada River in Kundyam, near Pathanapuram of Kollam District is a registered non-government organisation which is well designed, deeply devoted and dedicated to the destitute ranging from months old kids to the senior citizens. They are left high and dry by the very people they count on and the deranged who move about aimlessly or without any destinations. They also include the paraplegic and the bedridden; the deaf and dumb; orphaned kids, the physically and mentally challenged and the persons who just came back from the brink of suicide; the visually challenged; the HIV affected and the cancer patients and so on .They are the ones who had drifted from the set of courses of mainstream have created a world of their own and are leading a peaceful life.
Former President of India and visionary Bharat Ratna Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam on his visit to Gandhibhavan proclaimed “Gandhibhavan means a Mini India. We can see miniature forms of all sections of people here. The beauty of equality and secularism in this Mini India is exciting. I am very lucky to be here.”
The most memorable moments with the loved ones is to celebrate some of the occasions such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries, etc. Similarly , well-wishers take part in Gandhibhavan’s Prayer Services, in memory of their loved ones and enjoy a meal with the inmates. It may be a unique experience in your whole life and would like to invite all to be a part of this experience.
