Who we Help

Karuna Home accepts both the physically and/or mentally disabled, regardless of race, language or religion with preference given to the disabled from very poor families. However, due to the shortage of funds and staff, we are unable to accept the very severely disabled at this point in time.

Family members are advised to contact Karuna Home directly should they wish to enroll a member of the family.

Applicants are subject to a medical review before acceptance.

The length of stay is dependent on the financial situation of the family and the recovery potential of the applicant. Those with moderate problems might need just a few months of rehabilitation and training before returning to their own families who will be shown how to continue the rehabilitation program at home.

In addition, Karuna Home Association Italy, organizes a long distance adoption program for aged and poor Tibetans as well as for Tibetan monks.
