Swanthanam is a joint charitable programme of Fishermen community development programme (FCDP) and Theeradesa mahila society (TMS).The aim of the programme is to support the poorest ill patients among the fisher folk of kollam. There are hundreds of ill patients at the coastal area who have no means to meet the treatment expenses and many of them die off without proper treatment so we took a strong step to make certain changes in the area of health care. We strongly believe that every poor ill patient must get better medical treatment through which they can live their life at the fullest. This programme is running very successfully with the support of many well wishers.
