About St. Jude ChildCare Centres:
St. Judes, with its centres across the city, provides free of cost housing for cancer-inflicted children and their parents, along with free nutritional support, transportation services to take these children to the hospital, counselling services as well as activities such as ‘art-based therapy’ to keep them engaged and motivated during their time away from the hospital. It aims to create a “home away from home” for these children, by providing them with the physical and emotional necessities that will give them a better chance of beating cancer. In March 2012, St. Jude extended to Kolkata and opened its first centre there. It plans to open centres in other cities alongside hospitals which provide quality treatment.
