The Congregation of the Brothers of Charity, also called "The Society of the Brothers of Charity" landed in India in the year 1936 by the British Brothers in Cottar, Tamil Nadu, then due to the instability of the Government and other formal problems the Congregation withdrew from India. In the year 1984, in Jamshedpur, again it made an attempt to come back to India to start a centre for hearing impaired children, the problem of visa blocked them for the second time. Finally, for the third time, in the year 1992 on 31st May, it started its mission in India. It was in Ranchi, Jharkhand, the place where the development was at low.

Firstly, the Brothers were living in a rented house, then they shifted to St. Xavier's School, at Dorenda, Ranchi, Jharkhand. The Congregation sent Bro.Joel Ponsaran, the Present Provincial Superior of America, lived in Ranchi for several months and then he had to go back then, several Brothers Bro.Max Kunnen, Bro.John Pieere, Bro.Denis, Bro.Donald, and Bro.Godfried Bekeart, and several others came to India to help.
