Vincent De Paul Rehabilitation Center Eluru started on 25th of April 1984 by Rt. Rev. John Mulagada the Bishop of Eluru.At the beginning only the physically handicapped children were admitted . Preference were given to children under 12yers old for the effective treatment. The duration of the stay depends on the length of time required for rehabilitation treatment. After treatment all those boys who have no one to take care sent to Missionaries of Charity Brothers,and girls were kept with us.
The children were taken to different hospitals for their operation and after the Physcio Therapy and other treatment were given here.On 6th August 2005 in convergence with Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan a Government project began.
