Project descriptionThe home accommodates both highly mentally and physically disabled people of all ages (smaller children to almost 50-year-olds). As the name indicates, the inmates are not able to move around and spend most of the time in their beds, being fed and washed by staff. There are boys' and girls' hostels. They are split into those for mentally challenged (like Down-Syndrome, Authism) and those for physically challenged (e.g. Spinal Bifida), who use wheelchairs.
