Description

Mercy Home is a rehabilitation institute for the disabled, started on Aug 4th 1974 by His Beatitude Cardinal Mar Antony Padiyara, the then Archbishop of Changanassery. Various rehabilitation services are carried out here under the supervision of the Sisters of the Destitute (S.D). This place is 3 km  away from Changanasssery town and opposite to St.Thomas Hospital, Chethipuzha.


The mission of the congregation is to take care of the destitute and down trodden, the poor and the sick-irrespective of caste, creed and culture. Mercy Home is the first rehabilitation institute for the disabled managed by the S.D Sisters. Initially people with all types of disabilities were admitted in the Mercy Home regardless of age and sex. Gradually they were separated according to age group and admission was restricted to moving disabled children and adults. Later from this house boys were separated to Mercy Home, Kodinattukunnu. Nowadays polio cases are rare and Cerebral Palsy children are more in seeking admission. They need systematic training and assistance as their voluntary movements are tedious and laborious.
