These teams visit patients who are bedridden at regular intervals, provide home care, give medicines free of cost, and also give wheel chair, air bed, walkers, food kits etc. to those who are in need. A physiotherapy unit has been set up in Irinjalakuda regional centre where physiotherapy is given free of cost. I acknowledge with gratitude that the ambulances, cars and other facilities in these regional centres are donated by good minded and generous people.
