Snehasadan is a community care centre for people who are HIV positive. This institution is run by Camillian Fathers. It is administered by Sneha Charitable Trust. “Snehasadan” stands for the core value of compassion, commitment and competence.
At present Snehasadan takes care of 25 adults and 33 orphan and vulnerable children. It provides rehabilitation as well as palliative care for those who are in the last stage of the disease.
Apart from a blend of medical services and psycho social services they also provide counselling, educational and spiritual support.
We had interacted with the children of Sneha Sadan. They enthusiastically participated in the activities we conducted for them. They were also very keen on singing the rhymes we taught. The overall experience of the visit was a pleasant one, an eye opener and very enriching.
