Need your Support
Sevalaya needs your support and contribution for the below listed projects which need funding.
Annual Medical Expenses
Blood Sugar, BP, Arthritis etc are common illnesses related to old age which require periodical check – up, constant medication and regular medication.
Sevalaya takes care of the entire gamut of medical assistance required by the senior citizens, which include hospitalization and surgery. The expenses on this score are heavy.
Annual Medical Checkup for the residents is estimated to be Rs. 10,32,000 per annum.
Necessary Toiletries and Other Necessities
Apart from ‘Food, clothing and shelter’, there are certain basic necessities for day today living- items like tooth pastes, tooth brushes, soaps, towels, etc. These items are a significant part of our budget.
The required annual budget for toiletries is Rs 1,20,000/-.
The senior citizens are taken on a trip to temples near and far on an average once in a month. Each trip is estimated to cost Rs.17,500.
For 12 such temple trips in a year at an estimate of Rs.2,10,000 per annum.
Taking care of senior persons & youths, particularly from the background of our residents is undoubtedly a demanding task. For our home to be successful the wardens are to be given a reasonable honorarium. The need at present is more wardens to take care of our wards.
For wardens we require an annual budget of Rs 16,40,311/-.

Bunker cots for children
In view of the growing needs of ‘Sevalaya’ homes for children and more number of seeking support to into the fold of ‘Sevalaya’, we have to increase the facilities to meet the needs. Presently children sleep on the mats with sheets spread on them.
It would be more comfortable and safe, if children are provided cots and mattresses. In the present hostel space, we can accommodate more number of children with large utility space in the dormitory, if we provide for bunker cots. This will ensure more safety to children from insects, especially during rainy and winter seasons.
Hence 100 bunkers cots (Boys Home 50 + Girls Home 50) bunker cots made of iron with a ladder rods on the leg-side, will accommodate 200 children in both the facilities.
