Home for homeless, mentally and physically ill women, India


Many women have been abandoned by their families or abused mentally and physically. Many of these women, irrespective of their caste or religion, are taken in by MSP from the streets and given a safe haven in which to live. Each and every one of their need is attended to from food and shelter to counselling and medical care. More importantly MSP provides lifelong care for them and their children, many of whom are born at the shelter. Special attention is given to psychologically distressed ladies and those affected by AIDS and their children.MSP has started building a new shelter home project named “MANGAV”, which will give lifelong care over 500 women, Basaid funding will help to construct and expand the shelter facility. This (First Phase First building) will give lifelong home and care for more than 300 homeless and critically and mentally ill women and their children.
