Mercy Home is run by Sisters of the Destitute (SD Sisters), housing 20 children between the ages 5 – 18 years. They belong to CWC – Child Welfare Commitee, Thiruvanthapuram registered under the Juvenile Justice Act. These children are studying at St Ann’s and St Joseph’s Girls High School, Changancherry. The home is not getting any grant from the government, and the sisters are currently unable to afford school expenses of these children. A group of well-wishers from the surrounding areas and from their congregation join hands to support them with about Rs. 25,000 per month. But this is barely enough for their regular expenses.
JCI Nalukody along with MicroCharity is extending their support for these needy children. Total fee for this academic year comes to Rs. 50, 000.
