The Nirmala holistic center was created by one of the Sisters working at the Nirmala hospital. The center is especially dedicated to the medical needs of the local poor. The activities of the center are, by necessity, wide ranging in order to fulfill the myriad needs of the 2000 local families. There are educational classes on HIV/Aids; Values and Self Defense; Yoga; Stress and Grief Management; Children's Camps; Prayer Therapy; Counseling and Home Visits.
Today, Sister Clara has developed a project to turn a dry quarry into a pond. The pond is projected to provide an open water surface of approximately 376 square meters to the health center. The construction started in November 2009 and ended in 2010.
- Climate control: The pond will change the area microclimate from extreme heat to pleasant
- Water resource: The pond will provide sufficient water for the herbal plants, coconut and other trees as well as some water for the hospital
- Income generating: The sale of fish will generate income for the holistic center
