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.
