St. Gregorios Dayabhavan started functioning as a small home for 4 children whose parents were infected by HIV/AIDS disease in the remote village of Bhaktharahalli in Kunigal Taluk of Tumkur District in Karnataka State. Seeing the inmate’s plight, it was found necessary to commence a palliative care for the parents within the same premises and, the cumulative experience led to the formation of a community care center for the HIV infected.
