Childhood cancers have a high rate of cure but medical treatment needs to be supported by an infection free, cheerful environment and proper nourishment. Underprivileged parents from rural India bring their children diagnosed with cancer to large cities where high quality treatment is available. While treatment may last as long as two years, clean and safe accommodation is unaffordable for these families and often they end up living on the footpath next to the hospital where the child is being treated. St. Judes is bridging this gap with its innovative model of holistic care. Our “home away from home” is a hygienic, protective, nurturing environment which gives the children the best chance of beating cancer.
We provide free accommodation & holistic support to children travelling with their parents for treatment from villages & small towns to cities. Any help with regards to products related to food and hygiene will go a long way in bridging the gap..
