Mercy Home is dedicated to neglected children. Children are our future. And yet they are the softest and most vulnerable members of society.

We provide children with
· shelter & protection
· access to school & education
· food, clothing, healthcare
· emotional & spiritual guidance
· individual care & support
Our aim is to give these children a future and to bring forth a healthy, integrated and responsible personality.
Women's home and Men's home
In Mercy Home we care for destitute, poor, downtrodden people regardless of age, cast, religion, state or language. All are welcome as brothers and sisters. All are nursed with the same respect, love and compassion. Today Mercy Homes cares for about 130 homeless men and 40 abandoned women.
We provide patients with
· food & clothing
· shelter & protection
· medical & psychiatric care
· a loving & caring home
Our aim is to look after our patients with love and respect and the unceasing intention to restore their dignity.
The vision and action that began Mercy Home came from Mathew Manuel and his wife Molly. As young adults, they both served with Mother Teresa in Calcutta. As a newly married couple, they began to care for terminally ill patients in their modest mud hut. With a lot of courage, steely confidence and tireless hard work every year more beds were established for the poor, sick and disabled. What began in a simple hut became an incomparable life-community. Today, about 110 school children and 170 adult patients live at Mercy Home. Mathew and Molly are now supported by a small staff on a modest wage.

Visit Mercy Home
Ocular proof is worth a thousand words. Visit Mercy Home and see for yourself the beauty and sincerity of our work. Moreover, Mercy Home is located in a picturesque setting, nestled in the foothills of the Western Ghats. Pepper, coffee, cardamom, bananas, coconuts and other fruits grow in the surrounding woods. Iridescent birds chirp in the trees. The famous tea plantations of Munnar and other nearby sights are ideal for trips. And thanks to the altitude of 1200 meters, a refreshing evening breeze blows here, even if elsewhere the burning heat. Get in touch with us – you are welcome.
