We at Philokalia Foundation had a Key Handover Ceremony on the 1st of June 2022 at Meenadam, in Kottayam district of Kerala.
This house was constructed for one Mr. Satheesh & family. Mr. Satheesh and his wife, parent 2 little girls. But, due to their serious ailments they are unable to make two - ends meet.
Philokalia Foundation was informed about the condition by the locals of that area in the meantime our Chairman Mr. Mario Joseph alongwith his wife Giji Mario swung into action by first visiting the site and then seeing the condition of the family the decided to start the work immediately. They met Mr. Satheesh and his family and assured them to help them out of their problem.
The Foundation Stone was laid within a couple of days and the construction of the house commenced immediately. Once again, the house was ready in a Record Time of 6 months under the guidance and periodical supervision of Mr. Mario Joseph and his team.
The New House Keys were handed over by our Ex. Chief Minister Mr. Ooman Chandy in the presence of our Chairman and Founder Mr. Mario Joseph and his wife Mrs. Giji Mario with other dignitaries.
Philokalia Foundation was involved in a similar Housing Project but, with a different backstory. The house was built for two little children who lost their mother in a cold blooded murder committed by their own father. By the Grace of God and a few kind hearted Samaritans they received a small piece of land measuring 4 Cents approx.
