Procedure:

Once residents are admitted to the sanitorium, they are placed in the quarantine ward where initial assessments are conducted by the rehabilitation committee.  They are later recommended for participation in one of the workshops where they are further evaluated by the instructors in regard to their ability, talent and interest for placement in a particular workshop.

Active Workshops:

Cutting and sewing, embroidery, weaving, knitting, pottery, ceramic & tile, candle making, leather work, inlay, various handicrafts, calligraphy, assembly of electronic parts, simple electrical work, printing, silk screen, computer, framing, cellphone repair, motorcycle part assembly, etc.

While the primary objective of these workshops is occupational therapy, the high quality of some of the items produced, such as clothing items, make them suitable for sale and orders are placed for uniforms by hospitals, schools and factories.  This has become a source of income for the charity.

The following items can be ordered:

Office, school, hospital and factory uniforms, bedsheets, curtains, ceramic items, woven items, inlaid works and leather goods
