The AMM Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of the Murugappa Group, completed 100 years in 2024. The Foundation marked this historic milestone with the inauguration of the Centenary Block of the AMM Hospital at Pallathur in Sivaganga District of Tamil Nadu. 

Chief Guest, Mr Azim Premji, Founder Chairman of Wipro Limited inaugurated the Centenary Block today in the presence of Guest of Honour, Mr. P Chidambaram (Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha, and Former Union Minister), Mr. M V Subbiah, (Former Managing Trustee, AMM Foundation) and Mr. M A Alagappan (Managing Trustee, AMM Foundation).  

Established a century ago, the AMM Hospital, known locally as the ‘oru ruba’ (one rupee — which is the fee charged from patients) hospital, has been a beacon of quality healthcare for the community in the region. With the addition of the new block, it will now have state-of-the-art diagnostics, including CT Scan facilities.

To commemorate the legacy of the AMM Foundation, which runs several hospitals and educational institutions as well as a range of other initiatives, a coffee table book titled A Century of Service, authored by historian Sriram V, was released by Mr. Premji. The first copy of the book was received by Mr Chidambaram.

Speaking about the Foundation’s past and its future, MA Alagappan said, “As the nodal CSR arm of the Murugappa Group, AMM Foundation has been focusing on two core areas – Health and Education, by establishing health and educational institutions around our plant communities. In the new millennium, our services have evolved. These include Mobile Health Vans serving remote villages across the country, a Science Centre offering rural students their first experience of a science lab and many new development initiatives. This centenary year gives us an opportunity to celebrate the initiatives that transformed lives and to renew our commitment to serve the needy sections of society.”
