THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Helping Hands Organisation, aka H2O, is launching its new autism and disability rehabilitation centre at the Dravidian Linguistic Association (DLA) at Menamkulam in the district on Wednesday. 


Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran will inaugurate the centre, H2O officials said. On the day, 500 school kits will be distributed to underprivileged children, hailing from nearby regions. Established in 2012, Helping Hands Organization is a  non-profit support organisation and the brainchild of Jolly Johnson, the organisation’s chief executive director. 


Jolly had launched H2O with the help of eleven social activists hailing from different walks of life ranging from government officials, academicians and private citizens. H2O seeks to better the lives of differently-abled children particularly those affected with autism.

It has a four-point programme which includes ‘Daffodils,’ aimed at rehab programmes for the differently-abled children; ‘Sanjeevani,’ a programme for the elderly; ‘Pratheeksha’ for helping under-privileged children and the Children’s Movement for Civic Awareness.

H2O is into its fifth year in the district. Until now, the centre had operated out of Kariavattom, but now its being fully shifted to Menamkulam. Sub-collector Divya S Iyer and officials of the Kadinamkulam panchayat will be present on the occasion.
