IID West Section becomes Inter-Mission CARES

The IID West Section had been initiated in the year 1982, and over the years with activities like pavement ministry, slum day care centres, an orphanage in Paud (near Pune) and care for the destitute people it became a refuge for countless destitute people. This section of IID, too, was registered as a separate society called “Inter-Mission CARES”. Mr. Sumitra Gaikwad became the first executive director. Since its area of operation was Bombay, now Mumbai, the transfer of administration, which happened in 2002, helped the far-away branch to operate autonomously.
