RURAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT [RDP] AT MUDICHUR

We have a Day Care Centre at Mudichur, a village beyond Tambaram, where food, medical aid,clothes and pocket-money are given to the elders who come to the shelter every morning and leave after tea. They spend their time cutting vegetables, washing and sweeping the premises. We also organize regular health and dental camps.
