Accommodation for Patient n Kin

Most of the poor cancer patients who hail from villages and small towns need to travel to cities in India like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai for their treatment. Fortunately, many cancer hospitals provide diagnosis and treatment free of cost to underprivileged patients. However, the costly accommodation charges in major cities are unaffordable to the pateints, many of whom belong to the 'below the poverty line' category.

To redress this problem, charitable organisations provide accomodation to poor cancer patients as well as their attendents free of cost or at nominal charges. As the treatment for cancer is lengthy process, people are allowed to stay as long as required.  In many such homes, food too is provided at highly subsidised rates. Additionally, transport facilities are also made available from the accommodation to hospital and back.

If your family member suffers from cancer, it may be better to contact the accomodation providers listed below prior to leaving your residence to the city where hospital is located. However, after arrival in the city the hospital can also refer the patient to the organisation providing the accomodation.
