Village Development

We take part in Village Community Development Programs for proper infrastructure facilities viz. Road, Water, Drainage, Sanitation and planting of trees.

Periodic Free medical camps are arranged and medicines supplied to the Home inmates as well as to the entire Villagers;

We empower Village Women Folk (Self Help Groups) to start their own Small scale/ Cottage Industry through NLCT. We adopted 28 widows for social up-lift;

The New Life Charitable Trust started a movement in Eraiyur Village, located in Sriperumbudur, Tamilnadu, India to render a selfless service to parentless and the old. The village is 50 kilometer away from the Cosmopolitan City of Chennai, and 21 kilometer from Sub-urban town of Tambaram, and was not connected with road. In 1992 with repeated efforts with Public Welfare Department, a road was laid to Eraiyur and now one public bus is plying through this route.

The entire Eraiyur village is drought prone and has absolutely no yield of ground water the government supplied water is brought to this village everyday through pipelines only for few hours. Yet this is another major problem that New Life NGO and the villagers are facing. The New Life Charitable Trust along with Panchayat Board Leader worked with VHERDS (Voluntary Health Education and Rural Development Society) who donated a 5 HP motor, and drinking water was brought to the village.

The first hospital giving basic care was around 9 kilometer away from our home, for any emergency, the residents had to be brought to Tambaram some 21 kilometer for treatment. In year 2001, NEW LIFE MEDICAL CENTRE was inaugurated by Mr. T.P.Radhakrishnan, Secretary, VHERDS (Voluntary Health Education and Rural Development Society). The Medical Center has visiting Doctors twice a week supplying free medical check-ups and medicines. Weekly camp is organised under the leadership of Dr. M. Gopalaswamy in network basis through which about 25 doctors visit the Camp on turns and provide free treatment and medicines to the residents and the villagers.
