COVID-19 has been an incredibly challenging time for our home, due to reduced home visits from many of our regular donors and well-wishers, there has been a considerable reduction in donations whilst prices have continued to rise.
We have had to revisit our operating costs which severely impacted our planned improvements and budget .- Prices of food ,health care,medicines ,maintenance costs have sky rocketed. Our residents have also been impacted by COVID-19 with many of the residents as well as staff testing positive, requiring additional resources and expenses to cover their healthcare.
We hope through this fundraising initiative to safeguard our healthcare costs for at least 1 year. This will include annual cost of medication, speech therapy, physiotherapy, assistive support for daily living for 61 residents for whole year.

The aim is to raise Rs. 3,000,000 towards the healthcare of our residents, this will include annual cost of medication, speech therapy, physiotherapy, and 50% of the annual cost for assistive support for daily living for 61 residents.
A breakdown of the costs is given below:
|Annual Cost for Medicines
