Anandam- Home for the homeless at Vijay Mandir & Dadikar, Alwar & in Noida
SAPNA created its first home for the homeless at Vijay Mandir, Alwar in 2007. The home acts as a feeder for destitute survivors of trauma and other grave illnesses who are in need of recuperative care and support. A few of them are comatose. They need dedicated care and attention. This is provided by SAPNA’s caregivers, making It a role model for palliative care, acknowledge by premier hospitals like AIIMS and Safdarjung.
To address the need for a dedicated home for the homeless, SAPNA has constructed a beautiful 200 bedded facility near the Dadikar Fort at Alwar. This became operational in 2017 with the support of companies like Hindustan Zinc ltd, Tata Steel, Kajaria, Havells, Lingel and Parryware. The Government of Rajasthan has designated it as the Old Age Home for Alwar district.
In 2019-20, a separate home for homeless women, named Anandmayee, was created at Vijay Mandir. The home provides a safe haven to women who are victims of violence, trafficking and sexual abuse, and other forms of severe trauma. 21 women are in the home already. Our Noida hospice has embraced the nutritional needs of underprivileged children from nearby hamlets.
