The Kendram was established in 1975 with the initiative of Late Dr. Mandalvilli Mallikarjuna Rao of Rajahmundry town with the active cooperation of Sri Ramesh Kumar Jain and his friends who were the active college students at that time. The then District Collector encouraged the cause by allotting 11 Acres of land to the kendram. He was also instrumental in providing one submersible motor,a motor shed and one ground level reservoir.
The kendram was established with the sole aim of supporting severely disabled leprosy people and their kith and kin who have no other option except to live along with the patients. The kendram was registered in 1978 under the societies act.
