Motto: I was a stranger, you welcomed me ... and I was sick you took care of me (Mat- 25:36)


Palliative Care Centre for Cancer Patients

Today, many people in India suffering from cancer, experience pain, anxiety and mood disturbance. Conventional treatments do not always satisfactorily relieve these symptoms and some patients may not be able to tolerate the side effects. Palliative care needs to be available in both urban as well as rural areas as an integral part of health care services including hospital clinics.  This also includes essential drugs, medication and services ranging from durable medical goods to counselling programs. The foundation stone for "ABHAYAM" was laid on 3rd February 2008, by H. B. Mor Baselios Thomas I, and the construction is in progress next to Shanthi Bhavan.    

The Goal:-

Prevent and relieve suffering and to support the best quality of life for patients.  It refers to active total care of patients whose disease or symptoms may not respond to curative treatment.

We look forward to have your involvement and support for the noble cause.  Donations can be drawn by way of Cheque or DD in favor of "The St. Thomas Charitable Trust"
