Established in 2018, Akkara Foundation Bekal is a Non-profitable Organization based in Kasaragod, Kerala. The trust has been formed primarily to initiate medical and psycho-social assistance in the upliftment of physically and mentally challenged individuals.
The Endosulfan tragedy had left the victims of the mishap in an utter state of despair. According to the national human rights commission, more than 50000 villagers of the Kasaragod district are exposed to Endosulfan pesticides, most of them affected by rare diseases like cerebral palsy, mental retardation, neurodevelopmental disorders, and cancer. Most of these children experience difficulties in school, particularly with concentration, learning, speech, language, social skills, and behavioral difficulties.
We aim to build an Institution with State-of-the-Art facilities so that these differently-abled individuals have a chance to live a meaningful and fruitful life.
Our goal is to provide early intervention and continuous support for children suffering from various neurodevelopmental or other psychiatric conditions.
