This care group for adults with various different disabilities was established in 2016.

The building can accommodate up to 25 persons. Here they are kept busy daily with a variety of constructive activities such as knitting, clipping, pasting, as well as weaving and painting, etc. Furthermore they receive a healthy meal as well as other refreshments every day.

Whenever there is a marketing opportunity, they use it to sell their home-made products, usually with great success.

Their sustainability primarily depends on regular donations from caring members of the public as well as from compassionate business enterprises.
