St. Jude India Child Care Centres, Mumbai

April 2008

For people suffering from chronic diseases, the environment in which they convalesce is important in accelerating recovery. Economically underprivileged families who already spend heavily on treatment rarely have the privilege of a conducive environment for convalescence. HEMLATA has taken responsibility for three family units at St Jude’s, which serves as a home away from home, for the families of those being treated for Cancer at the Tata Memorial in Mumbai. HEMLATA’s contribution enables St. Jude’s to provide families with a secure, hygienic place to stay, free of cost, transport, clean water, rations and nutritional supplements, educational and recreational activities, counselling and skill development.

“HEMLATA has been a kind supporter of St. Jude India Child Care Centres since 2008-09. The everyday stress of coping with a life threatening disease is tremendous for both the parents and children. HEMLATA initiated Yoga for our families in the year 2008, providing holistic support and care for parents as well as children. Nearly 1200 families have benefitted from the service in the nine years of the support.”
