In a unique effort to provide a loving and liveable stay for poor women, the Navy Wives Welfare Association (Southern Region) has set up a 19-bed facility at the Welfare Association Trust (WAT) Psychosocial Rehabilitation Center near Veliyathunadu in Aluva. The facility was financially supported by Sudha Murty, President of the Infosys Foundation, and the project was led by Sapana Chawla, President of NWWA-SR and executed by INS Venduruthy.
The Navy said WAT is a non-profit organization involved in the rehabilitation of orphans, indigent and psychologically affected people in society and victims of social abuse / domestic violence. The organization provides inmates with accommodation, food, medical care, psychological / psychiatric counseling, financial support, educational assistance and multi-faith spiritual counseling through their various programs. The organization currently supports 129 underprivileged men, women and children, ” the Navy said in a statement.
WAT has recently been inundated with new applications from various organizations to rehabilitate poor people in and around Ernakulam. However, in the absence of additional infrastructure to accommodate new detainees, WAT must depend on funding from other individuals / organizations. Recognizing the urgent need to support such organizations, the NWWA (SR) took it upon themselves to undertake the necessary infrastructure additions to this location so that new inmates at the facility could benefit from shelter. ” , did he declare. The Navy said that with the constant contributions of Dr Mansoor, Chairman of WAT and the concerted efforts of INS Venduruthy, a 19-bed facility was delivered in a record time of 18 days. “WAT has also received additional equipment and items such as cots, mattresses, pillows, sheets, pillow cases, etc. to improve the living conditions of the detainees,” he said. .
