Description: Dilasa Bhavan at Miraj is a Rehab Centre owned by the Missionary Society of St. Thomas the Apostle (MST). Dilasa is the name given to the various interventions carried out for the care and support of People living with HIV/AIDS (PLHAS), awareness, prevention and control of AIDS, and stigma eradication by Sangli Mission Society. HIV/AIDS programs were initiated in the mission by Fr Thomas Karamel, Fr George Muttathupadam and late Fr Paul Theruvanmoola. Sangli Mission Society has initiated several activities for the People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA) under the umbrella of DILASA. It has expanded its mission among the PHLAs in four districts of Maharashtra, namely, Sangli (Dilasa Bhavan, Miraj), Kolhapur (Dilasa, Kolhapur), Ratnagiri (Navjeevan Arogya Kendra) and Sindhudurg. Presently Sangli Mission has one hospice (Dilasa Bhavan) in Miraj, two community care centers (CCC) and four coordination centers in each district for the care and support of PLHAS. Dilasa project was begun by Fr. Joy Kunnel (Director of Social Action, Sangli Mission) in March 2005 in a rented house near Miraj Railway Station. This centre, headed by Fr. Kunnel, conducted various kinds of awareness and intervention programme for the HIV/AIDS affected in Sangli District, especially Miraj. Later Fr. Sabu Maprakavil joined the project in June 2006. He was given the charge of Dilasa Project and Fr. Kunnel continued as the Director of Social Action of Sangli Mission. It was Fr. Sabu Maprakavil who envisioned the opening of a hospice place for the HIV/AIDS infected, especially children. Accordingly, he began a rehab centre ‘Dilasa Bhavan’ in a rented house at Subhash Nagar, Miraj for the HIV-infected children. The centre provides care for the children of the affected and infected with HIV/AIDS. Fr. Maprakavil continued also with the Dilasa project office near the Railway Station. This office was later shifted as the owner of the house wanted to renovate the building. During this time, another house (in the same street) was taken on rent for continuing with the Dilasa project office. However, this office was too eventually closed and Fr. Maprakavil continued with Dilasa Bhavan. On 11, June 2007 Fr. Roshan Kuzhuppallil joined Dilasa project as assistant. He stayed with Fr. Sabu in Kupwad house near Alphonsa School, Miraj. Eventually Fr. Roshan was transferred to Kolhapur with independent charge of the Dilasa project activities in Kolhapur area (Jan 2009) for he was handling the project in Kolhapur and within this time project got a good support from the people of Kolhapur and a working office was established in Laxmipuri. During this period, Fr. Roshan had his stay at Sant Thoma Bhavan (Regional House), and he was appointed also as the Parish Priest of Alphonsa Church, Kolhapur. It was during the period of Dilasa project that 2005 Maharashtra Floods took place from 29th August. The MST fathers who helped the relief work (Frs. Pullappally and Akkattukudilil) and flood relief project (Frs. Sasseril and Chettiakunnel) also had their stay in Kupwad house with Fr. Maprakavil. Snehagiri sisters too helped Dilasa Project for some time. Dilasa Convent In the initial phase of Dilasa Bhavan (i.e., when it was functioning in the rented house in Subhash Nagar, Miraj), two Holy Spirit nuns from Pune assisted in the day-today running of the rehab centre. But they didn’t continue long because of shortage of personnel in their congregation. However, we were fortunate to get help from the DSS sisters whose convent was started at Ashadeep Sangli. From 2009 on, the DSS sisters assist in the management of Dilasa Bhavan. The pioneering sisters were Srs. Reni and Theresitta. Assets: 3.5 Acre(s) of land in the name of SMS Orphanage building (Dilasa Bhavan)
