We work with the patients at the Isolation Ward/Destitute Ward in the Ernakulam General Hospital.
The Isolation Ward has just 24 beds and over 50 patients on any given day - destitute patients have no 'bystanders' or people who can help them change or eat, let alone use the bathroom. Our patients are invariably homeless and have no income that can provide for their medical aid.
The Ashoka Tree provides donated/new bed sheets and towels, toiletries as well as nightwear for both men and women. We also provide sanitary pads and adult diapers.
If you would like to help provide funds for medications for our patients or in any other way, do let us know.
The Ashoka Tree works with Fr. Tezza's Special School, up in the mountains of North Kerala, in Wynad.
We donate clothes and sanitary pads for the 108 children who live here with the Daughters of St. Camilus. We also help with funds for their food supplies every week.
Do get in touch with us of you would like to help our children here.
