Donations To The National Institute Of Mental Health

As a request made by the National Institute of Mental Health in Angoda, we recently donated 50 plain rubber slippers to help improve the mental health of patients. These slippers will be used to create crafted slippers adorned with beads and flowers, providing patients with an engaging activity that can have a positive impact on their well-being.

Why is this initiative important?

Mental health is a critical aspect of overall well-being, and it is essential to provide patients with opportunities to engage in activities that promote their mental well-being. Crafting slippers using beads and flowers can be a therapeutic and creative outlet for patients, allowing them to express themselves and engage in a meaningful activity.

How can crafting slippers improve mental health?

Engaging in crafting activities has been shown to have numerous benefits for mental health. It can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus and concentration, enhance self-esteem and self-confidence, and promote a sense of accomplishment. Crafting also provides a distraction from negative thoughts and emotions, allowing patients to focus on the present moment and experience a sense of calm.

The role of rubber slippers in the crafting process

Plain rubber slippers serve as the base for the crafted slippers. Patients can use beads and flowers to decorate the slippers, creating unique and personalized designs. The flexibility and durability of rubber slippers make them an ideal canvas for creativity, allowing patients to experiment with different colors, patterns, and textures.

How will patients benefit from this initiative?

By participating in the crafting process, patients will experience a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Engaging in a creative activity can boost their self-esteem and provide a positive outlet for self-expression. Additionally, crafting slippers can help patients develop fine motor skills and improve their hand-eye coordination.

Supporting mental health through community involvement

Donating the rubber slippers is just one way we can support mental health initiatives in our community. By coming together and providing resources for patients, we can create a more inclusive and supportive environment for those struggling with mental health issues. It is important to recognize the value of engaging patients in activities that promote their well-being and contribute to their overall recovery.


The donation of 50 plain rubber slippers to the National Institute of Mental Health in Angoda is a small but meaningful step towards improving the mental health of patients. By providing them with the opportunity to engage in crafting activities, we hope to contribute to their overall well-being and support their journey towards recovery. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by mental health issues.
