Manisha Krishnasamy could not fulfil her dream of joining the army or becoming a doctor, but nothing could stop her giving back to society. The compassionate 23-year-old has rehabilitated around 150 homeless people in Erode, Tiruchy, Thanjavur and Salem.
Manisha, who has no support, even from her own family, in her endeavours, says “financial difficulties prevented me from becoming a doctor and serving the needy. So I chose to do a B.Sc course in nursing.” She bagged the 2017 Best Outgoing Student of the Year Award at the JKKN College of Nursing and Research.
We collect the necessary data on their current status and personal histories and set up a plan to rehabilitate them as per their wishes. If they are old, we admit them to an old age home.
