In English, CRIPAM translates to the Father Anthony Muller Recovery House for Children
CRIPAM is a centre for the recovery of children suffering from malnutrition. Opened in 1966 and led by Salesian priest, Father Forin Pascale, CRIPAM is able to accomodate 30 children daily aged 0 – 6 years, Monday to Friday from 7am – 5pm. Every morning the children are collected by minibus from their homes and taken to the CRIPAM centre to be cared for, fed, clothed, receive medical treatment and in the evening returned to their families. Children average a stay of a few weeks to a few months until fully recovered. The cost of recovery per child is €1 per day.
