Community assessment: How the project team learned about the community’s needs
While visiting Tata memorial Hospital, for aiding patients
Project impact: How the project will help the community after the project ends
Every month, thousands of cancer patients come to Mumbai from far flung areas to receive cancer treatment in aided hospitals. These patients travel great distance, often mortgaging their homes and farms in the hope of finding the best possible cancer treatment at charitable cost. As treatments stretch from days to months these families are sometimes forced to live on the streets, fending for themselves in menial ways. when we adopt a family, we not only provide free accommodation but also strive to make their stay memorable with fun-filled activities and ambiance. it is set up with the help of professionals, experts and enthusiasts from social sector the patient care centres.
