Description:

SJICC USA supports and funds non-profits such as the India based St. Jude India ChildCare Centres (St. Judes) which runs 16 Centres in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Jaipur.

In major cities of India where low cost cancer treatment is available, children who need treatment for cancer and their parents come to hospitals from distant towns and villages. The hospitals do not treat them as in patients during the long drawn out treatment and these needy families do not have a place to stay whenever the child is not admitted to hospital. Hence, St Judes provides these families with free of cost:

  1. Housing
  2. Nutritional support
  3. Transportation to and from the hospital
  4. Counselling for the family and new skills for income generation
  5. Educational and recreational activities
  6. Art-based therapy, music therapy and yoga
