Every monthly donation helps more mentally ill patients like Maniammal
After recovering from mental illness, the Banyan attempted to reintegrate Maniammal with her family. However, her husband had remarried and her daughter was hostile. WIth nowhere to go, she had to live in an old-age home.
Unfortunately, she had to move from there and the frustration with being shuttled around along with the burden of the feeling of being unwanted, Maniammal decided to live on her own in a housing board colony.
With regular assistance from The Banyan, she is now engaged in self-directed pursuits. Her life is now a happy mix of the intimate, everyday and uncommon, albeit a bit unconventional - most importantly, it is on her own terms.
