Mar Gregorios Rehabilitation Centre (MGRC) is a Charitable organization under the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and is engaged in the rehabilitation of poor persons with disabilities. We are trying to bring succor to persons with various types of disabilities such as visually impaired, orthopaedically handicapped, hearing impaired and mentally retarded. The area of operation at present consists of six village panchayats around Trivandrum city ie, Aruvikkara, Karakulam, Kudappanakkunnu, Vattiyoorkavu, Vellanad and Vilappil. We are giving service to all the derserving persons with disabilities in the area, without any consideration as to caste, creed or religion.
Unlike most of the other rehabilitation institutions, our rehabilitation work is community based which enables the beneficiaries to live and work in their own homes. This system has the distinct advantage, that the disabled persons are not dislocated from their homes and therefore continue to get the help and support, from their families and neighbours. At present we give regular service to around 450 disabled persons.
