Anantha Ladies Home Endowment, Jaffna, Sri Lanka
This endowment provides for the care of displaced elderly women with the goal to return them to their villages. The affected women initially receive treatment as in-patients at the mental health unit of the Vavuniya General Hospital. Once their acute illness is reasonably cured, they are generally referred to Anantha Illam. Based upon availability of accommodations, those who have no one to take care of them or who are in need of special care and are destitute, are to be given priority admission to the center. The inmates are provided accommodation, food and counseling.
Documents and photos of the home may be found here.
