CHENNAI, INDIA: With around 400 people under their care, Sivananda Ashram is appealing outside its homeland for additional funds for maintenance and expansion. The non-profit institution of more than 50 years, receives only RS 36/per month (US$0.78) from the government for each inmate. Orphans, destitute women, physically handicapped persons, old people, and AIDS-infected children are nurtured within the confines of the ashram. In an expansion program, the ashram would like to start a working women's hostel, a home for the blind and deaf, or training programs for youth who have been raised under its tutelage.
