Capernaum is an organization founded by Sr. Juliet Joseph with the approval of the Archdiocese of Verapoly on 22nd August 2003 at Vaduthala of Ernakulam to protect and feed the destitute.
Sr. Juliet was a member of Carmelite Congregation. In 2003, she had Cervical Disc diseases with (L) Cervical Brachial Neuralgia and due to this she had continuous severe pain and disability in the left side of her body. Because of this disability she was forced to leave the congregation in March 31 , 2003. She also lost her hearing capacity of left ear. Realizing that it was God’s will to open up new vistas in her life and she remembered His Teaching “He who has two tunics, let him give to him who has none.” She was aware that she doesn’t have sound physical health to share with the sick. Even though her body is weak, her mind is still strong and a lot of people are there on the street with weak mental health. So she started taking care of the mentally weak destitute those who were handed over to her through Police Authorities or Child welfare committee state wide. This service is continuing perpetually from the beginning. Most destitute rescued from the streets are terribly sick while they are brought in.
Despite struggling and limping on several occasions, Capernaum still goes on making a meaningful difference in the lives of many orphaned and disabled children.
The gates of Capernaum Charitable Trust have always been open to receive the abandoned boys/women. Medical care for the inmates, wherever necessary, is facilitated through Sree Sudheendhra Medical Mission Hospital, Lakshmi Hospital, Lourdes Hospital , Amrutha Health Care Centre, Ernakulam
