The staff from the reception to the house-keeping and waiters would go out of their way to please. So were the doctors and therapists. Well done SOUKYA!! Well done Dr. & Mrs. Mathai.”

“ Dear Mrs. & Dr. Mathai, it is written that the footsteps of the righteous are ordered of the Lord. He led me here to have a glimpse of what he can do with willing vessels. Thank you for pursuing your God given vision with so much passion. One gets a taste of heaven in the campus. The peace, the love and efficiency of a purpose driven team.  Incredible India of incredible people. Thank you all and I pray your kind increases. My stay will remain a testimony that will bless others. As I go back to Nigeria, I propose to share my experience of SOUKYA with as many as I am led to. I also hope that many will catch the vision and run with it. I pray that one day SOUKYA will find her way to Africa-Nigeria. Thank you also for your gift of love. Remain a blessing. Great John & Matthew.”
