Nalla Samarayan Ashram is started in 15 August 1998, the parish of Pulimavu for caring mentally sick Karnataka woman Pinjelamma under the leadership of Fr.Roy Mathew Vadakkel and the help and collaboration of Carmelite sisters and natives. This ashram is helping for women who are wandering through the street and mentally retarded women who are not protective at home.
The cathedral member Vettath Kunjettan donated 24 cent land for Nalla Samarayan, and it started with the cooperation of the public and going forward everyday only by the help of good people. We have already served 390 sisters here. Those who have died and have changed into other services. There are 108 people in this house now.
Everyday packed lunch will get from houses. From starting onwards, Carmelite sisters are leading the everyday duties. Dr.Sr.Carmali, a mental health expert, has been on every Friday and has the assistance needed for sisters.
