CH Centres are institutions that operate as a non- profit, independent organization. The charity organization works to empowers the poor and improves the social, political and economic situation of the poor. KMCC has built CH Centresin the vicinity of six Government Medical Colleges in the State and several district General Hospitals. These centres serve as places for stay of the attendants of inmates of hospitals and provide free food, stay facilities and in several cases, palliative care. The CH stands for late IUML leader Mr. C. H. Mohammad Koya, chief minister of Kerala for a brief period during the 1970s.
One such centre named ShihabThangal Centre is coming up on a plot of land measuring 3,800 sq. ft. near the NIMHANS (National Institute of Mental Health and Neurological Sciences) on Hosur Road in Bengaluru. The Rs. 10-crore project was initiated in 2014 and is nearing completion. The 28 KMCC chapters in Bengaluru donated the money for the three-storeybuilding which will be named Shihab Centre for Humanity. It will be ready by 2018 and provide stay for attendants of the inmates in the NIMHANS, a nationally reputed centre for treatment of the mentally sick persons. The KMCC also maintains several units of ambulances in the City for ferrying the dead to the respective place for funeral and burial in Kerala
