We are happy to share that we recently opened another centre in Varanasi. The new facility is located in Sikraul and has 16 units - 15 regular and one isolation unit. Opened in collaboration with Tata Memorial Centre and Nagar Nigam, it is sponsored by the Brij Disa Foundation and Gupta Family.
The new centre will help us provide free accommodation and holistic care to 16 families who come for cancer treatment at The Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital.
This is our second centre in the city. The first one, launched in partnership with HBCH in 2020, is also a 16-unit centre located within the Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya Cancer Centre (MPMMCC), and supported 23 new patients and 37 returnee patients in 2020-21.
With the opening of the new centre, St. Judes now has 38 Centres supporting over 480 families in Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Vellore, Guwahati, Chennai, Delhi, and Varanasi.
