The Invalid House: a home for men with disabilities outside Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan

The Invalid House is a home for men with disabilities outside Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan.  It houses 262 men with mental and physical disabilities.  A few years ago, the home had almost nothing for the men.    There was one razor  and one washcloth to share between all the men for two weeks.  None of the beds had mattresses, blankets and very poor heating systems.  The floors were all concrete and the ceilings leaked.

Four yeas ago a Canadian ministry group started sponsoring the men’s home.  The dining room is now being remodeled and there is hot water in the kitchens and bathrooms.  Every man has been given a mattress and blankets and a barber shop area was built with modern tools.  Classrooms have been added and more projects are being started.  But there is still a lot to be done.
