About Us

Among the inmates, you shall find innocent children and the life experts old people. They are orphans, homeless, poor, inflicted and old helpless parents. The greatest gain SREE CHITRA HOME enjoys is the present status of being the hope and refuge to several people, which had a humble beginning with 9 inmates in 1943 by His Highness Sri Chitra Thirunal.
