The story of the origin of the South Kerala Medical Mission is more than a Century old, since 1892 to be exact. By that time, the London Missionary Society (LMS) that started its evangelical work in 1806 with the arrival of Ringle Taube at Mylady, had already made its presence felt with its involvement in the socio-economic, spiritual and educational life of the marginalized, illiterate, neglected people of the erstwhile South Travancore, victims of superstition and epidemics like malaria and cholera.

The very idea of starting a Medical Mission was that of Rev. Charles Mead, the second Missionary of the LMS to come toSouth Travancore. Charles Mead who arrived in 1817 served the Mission of South Travancore for twenty years was able to convince the authorities of the LMS the necessity for the services of more missionaries and the need for opening more centers for medical aid in South Travancore.
