Significant Community Outreach activities

1990 – When Kanyakumari district was in distress during the unprecedented floods, our Chairman Dr. C. K.  Velayudhan Nair, in association with HelpAge India, held 15 flood relief camps, in which health check ups and medicines, food, clothing, and utensils were distributed free along with redoing proper water and sanitation facilities in these areas.

1991- Through a unique community engagement programme named ‘Mathrusangam’, Dr Rema V. Nair  organised vocational training programmes for housewives in the neighbourhood. They were made self-reliant by learning stitching, embroidery work, rope spinning, powder, soap, lotions and perfumes making, candle making, and diamond cutting. She also helped many old age homes by providing funds, food and free health check-ups.
