What we do

St. Jude India ChildCare Centres (St. Judes) currently runs 22 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
St.Judes is thus
"A home away from home" for these families
The St.Judes model is based on three interlocking and interdependent "Circles" providing for the high quality holistic care needed by these families.
