SNEHAN PROJECT

The project was launched in 2010 to rescue baggers / abandoned aged people from the streets. The objective of the project is to rescue homeless abandoned elders from the streets and restore them to homes. Under the project, we are getting phone calls from Puducherry Police Department, Social Welfare Department, and the General public to rescue elders from the streets.
After getting information of abandoned elders, a Rescue Team reaching the location and providing food, medical care (if require), clothes, and counseling to an elder and trying to restore the elder in his/her own house with children/relative or sending them in Homes who are running by Govt. /Non-Government Organizations.
