1. Home for the poor (Agathimandiram)

Mundakpadam Mandiram has grown during the past 81 years into a refuge housing over 100 destitute men and women, aged and infirm. We try to maintain and administer Home for the poor (Agathimandiram) in such a way that each old man and woman admitted may have a peaceful, comfortable life, sharing and caring for each other and helping them to die in peace and hope.

2. Senior Citizens Home

Juhanon Mar Thoma Mandiram for senior citizen couples/individuals has 21 self contained units. Sapthathy Home can accommodate 14 senior citizens. The senior friends are encouraged to spend the evening of their life in peace. The nearness of the hospital and medical care, possibilities of social service and spiritual exercise and participation in the various programmes of Mandirams make life in this home cheerful and peaceful.

3. Balika Mandiram

This home for orphan girl children was started in 2001 as one of the P.C. George Birth Centenary Projects. There are ten children of an age group 4 years to 22 years live in this home. All  attend to schools, three in Don Bosco HSS Puthuppally, four in Baker Memorial Girls HSS Kottayam and two in Leyamma Memomorial Nursing School. The eldest girl has completed the GNM course. She is now working in the Mandiram Hospital. A "mother" assisted by a home nurse and a teacher looks after the children.

4. Child Sponsorship Project

Children are selected from the poor families in the  locality and they are provided with study material, dress, private tuition and personality development programmes. The first phase of Child sponsorship project was started in 1998 and completed in 2008. The second phase was started in May 2009. Presently there are 65 children sponsored under the project and we are on the look out for more sponsors. Parents of the children are contacted regularly and seminars, study tours and meetings are arranged for them. Each sponsor contributes Rs.5000 or $ 120/- per annum for ten years for his/her sponsored child.

5. Mandiram Hospital

Set in a rural background, Mandiram hospital, started in 1943,is a division of Mandirams Society serving the local area, mostly for the poor and middle-income group. In the last 70 years Mandiram Hospital has become one of the best 200 bed General Hospitals in Kerala, with all the speciality departments. 

Free medical treatment is offered to the inmates of the Mandiram (Destitute Home), the Kerala Balagram, Balika Mandiram and to the Hospital and Mandiram staff. Poor patients needing financial assistance can approach for help from the Good Samaritan's Fund. The Hospital does not make any profit. Whatever balance we save is spent for restructuring old structures. For any investment for buildings, new wards, costly equipments etc., we bank on the goodwill of the friends of Mandirams in India and abroad. Please visit www.mandiramhospital.org
