Palm of Deborah started in 2004 by Sheila Subramanien the founder and visionary. I saw a great need to help those who were poverty stricken, and the need to empower people with a low self-esteem, the aged needed encouragement and support. People needed to be taught, trained and equipped in life in order to be self-sufficient, there are people who, are struggling with drug addiction and alcohol. P.O.D. Entered into an arena of community help at the right time. P.O.D. Is philanthropic in its ideology. Lack of funds and resources hindered the progress of Palm of Deborah but made the best of the limited funds and resources.
