Bed Support :

Expenses of the patients admitted in a particular bed are met by various donors in the bed support scheme. Reports of patients occupying that particular Bed is regularly updated to the donors. A Name Plate bearing the Donor’s Name or his/her loved ones will be placed at the bed side. In a permanent life support scheme, a deposit of 3,00,000/- at 8% annual interest provides 24,000/- per year. i.e. 2,000/- month. i.e. 65/- day.

Bed support can also be made as monthly support or annual support.

In our wards, the beds are divided into the following categories:

  • Red beds for life time permanent support of 3 Lakhs
  • Blue beds for life support, but being paid in instalments and hasn’t reached 3 Lakhs
  • Yellow beds – Monthly support
  • Green beds – No support yet

Care Beyond Leprosarium:

Our leprosy patients undergo special surgeries like Cataract, Skin graft, amputation and even hip replacement at St.Luke’s hospital, Nazareth, free of cost. Some of them when needed are even admitted for ICU care.


Child Support :

Whoever welcomes in my name One such child as this, welcomes me.

- St.Mathew 18:5

St.Luke’s Home for Healthy Children gives refuge to such children. They receive food, clothes, shelter, medicare and education -- all free of cost. After School Finals they are sent for job-oriented technical training. At the end of the training, St.Luke’s helps them with job placement. There is still lot of stigma attached to leprosy. All the members of the leprosy victim's family are affected by it. Very little could be done to change the mindset of the society, once a family is branded as a "leprosy family". Educating the next generation of the family helps in reducing the stigma once attached with the family. The educated children aid in upliftment of the whole family.

Sponsorship/ Scholarship is given to the children in the following ways:

  • Hostel children at Peikulam are studying at nearby Tamil School.

Scholarship : Children pursuing their higher education are also supported. Though education of children in other schools and in higher studies is expensive, we fund the entire education if there is academic excellences and also family's support. This way, there is purpose and motivation for the family and responsibility is shared by the parents as well. The fees may vary depending on the course. Fixed Permanent Scholarship is 3,00,000/-.
