Support a differently abled person live independently


Every monthly donation helps in providing care to people like Dada

Born on 15th August 1947, Subhash is one of Raphael's senior-most residents and has been with them for the last 40 years. He was elated and overjoyed to celebrate his 70th birthday by hoisting the National flag on Independence Day. Subhash loves talking to people, and no passer-by can escape his "Apka naam kya hai?' (What is your name?) question.

Fondly called as 'Dada', his sweet and amiable temperament make him a favorite with both elders and children. Age has caught up with him and these days he can be seen sitting and sunning himself in his armchair outside his room. He might have grown weak in strength but not in spirit, and he loves to participate in all cultural programmes at the Centre.

This year Subhash took a proud and independent decision to vote for his political party in the February State legislative elections.

Program Description

Based in Dehradun, Raphael supports a number of adults who were brought to the center by their parents or guardians when they were children many years back. Unfortunately, nobody has returned to claim these people till date, and they are left under the care of the staff.

There are an adequate number of male and female helpers, who take good care of these people. Raphael also provides these beneficiaries with vocational training in different activities based on their capabilities. These activities range from gardening and peon training to candle making and manufacturing fabric and paper products. This not only keeps them occupied but also fills them with a renewed sense of confidence.

Donations made to this program support the cost of food, healthcare, operating expenses, and personnel cost. When you donate to this program, you will be the reason for a mentally challenged adult living with dignity

About The NGO

Raphael Logo

Situated in Dehradun, Raphael was founded by renowned humanists, Lord Leonard Cheshire, and his wife Baroness Sue Ryder in April 1959. In the more than 50 years of its existence, Raphael has offered its services in varied areas for the relief of suffering.

They have worked with people suffering from Leprosy, Tuberculosis, and Intellectual impairment, touching more than 22,000 lives in the process. Leprosy cured patients and intellectually challenged residents are also encouraged to work in their Rehabilitative Workshop, for which they are remunerated accordingly. Apart from running a school and shelter home for their students, they also have a Community based rehabilitation project, as part of which they work with children in government schools.

Once the students in their residential home grow up, they are encouraged to live in a home environment under the supervision of a house parent, while they attend classes at the day center. This helps prepare them for independent living in the community.
