About St Jude Childcare Centres UK
St Judes immediate focus is on children in India who are receiving treatment for cancer and who stay with one or both parents in charitable accommodation during the course of their treatment. The needy parents from rural India bring their children suffering from cancer to large cities where treatment is available. Clean safe accommodation is beyond their means and often these families end up on streets next to the hospital where the child is being treated. This environment leaves them vulnerable to opportunistic secondary infections, which neutralises the effect of the treatment. In despair parents often abandon treatment altogether. We seek to bridge this gap with the innovative model of holistic care.
