St. Jude India Child Care Centers (St. Jude's) was founded to ensure that every child suffering from cancer, irrespective of their economic status, have access to the best possible treatment available and stand a chance to fight the disease and live a healthy, happy life. To this effect, the team of 140 staff members at St. Jude's provides cost-free and holistic care to patients and their families during the child's treatment.
In close to 33 centers across India, St. Jude's provides such families with free housing, the necessary nutritional intake, free transportation to and from the hospitals, counseling, art-based therapy, music therapy and yoga for the patients, and skill training activities for the families to open up new avenues for income generation. The organization has admitted 11,180 children so far across its 33 centers.
The fundamental mission at St. Jude's is to provide a clean, safe and cost-free environment and holistic care to needy children affected by the illness and their accommodating parents.
