Program Description

Every year, hundreds of cancer-affected children travel to Mumbai along with their parents for treatment. With no place to stay in the course of the treatment, they usually end up staying on the streets, thus living at a risk of contracting secondary infections. Many of them even abandon therapy.

St. Jude India Child Care Centre works for the alleviation of such conditions for children undergoing cancer treatment. St. Jude India provides these families with a sanitized and secure environment where the patients and their families are provided the necessary nutritional and emotional support to endure the treatment. Through counseling, educational and recreational sessions they ensure the families are free of all myths surrounding their child's condition.

As for the patients themselves, they ensure a sense of normalcy is maintained for the children and they continue with activities they would pursue in a normal set up, like drawing or painting.
