Help Pallium India to renovate its new hospice

Tax benefits
Doctor Rajagopal offers palliative care services free of cost to the needy, treating the terminally ill and helping their families at the remotest parts of Kerala.

Please help bring some comfort and colour into the lives of patients with life limiting diseases and to their families.
Let's brighten up their environment and make it lively, the dull walls in the new palliative care unit cannot possibly do any good for anyone's mood.
Help us raise as much as we can to renovate the Hospice more comfortable for our fellow patients.
Patients that come to our institution in Trivandrum are a few of the many in India who are suffering from terrible pain and distress due to diseases such as cancer, paralysis or other debilitating conditions. Palliative care aims to treat the symptoms and also provide emotional, social and spiritual support. No one should be left to suffer without support and proper medical care.
Pallium India is working to establish and provide palliative care to people throughout India, allowing them to live with dignity and supporting those that care for them.

Our facility in Trivandrum is a hospice, where patients whose symptoms cannot be managed at home or those approaching the end of their lives come for care and support. It also houses patients undergoing rehabilitation from spinal cord injuries, patients who lost the ability to walk or use their arms. Here they can stay, have physiotherapy and learn new skills to help them change their lives. We also have an out-patient department to see the many people living in the community with long term problems. The current hospice is far away from the city limits with less transportation facility, this is worrying the patients and their family members. Most of the patients who are using our inpatient facility are been referred from Govt medical colleges or from the suburban regions and the inaccessibility is troubling the patients to reach out to the facility. Ours is the one and only free facility for admitting palliative care patients in the city and the poor patients highly depends on us.
Now we have identified a facility accessible to the patients of Medical college and those referred from other centers, this facility is in the highway and have good public transport facility. It is an old hospital which stopped functioning for years and in dilapidated condition. We wish to renovate and make this facility a beautiful home for our patients and their families. Once it is renovated, this facility can deliver palliative care to around 5000 patients a year.

We are asking YOU to kindly donate to help us renovate and re-decorate this facility and brighten up the days for all our patients. This will make a huge difference to the wellbeing of all our patients and make our staff happy to work in a colorful environment.

Dear Supporters,

Pallium India has seen 2017 new patients in the year 2018. And we have 3014 active patients as of now. More than half of them are having advanced cancer and the others are with a variety of serious health issues causing suffering. Our objective is to improve the quality of life of the patients and their families.
4 to 5 teams go out every day making home visits to people who are bed-bound. An inpatient unit caters to people who cannot stay at home any more.
A halfway home houses people with paralysis, providing physical, mental and social rehabilitation and empowering them to be contributing members of the society.
82% of our patients have been financially destroyed by catastrophic health expenditure. Our services are free to them including free medicines and sometimes more. We provide food kits to more than 75 families to make sure that they do not starve. We educate around 300 children of these families so that the financial difficulty does not result in denial of education to them. And once we start giving support for education, we make sure that it is continued till their education is complete.
Palliative care, both the science and art of it, needs to be taught to doctors, nurses and others from all over the country. We run courses. Around 200 doctors and a larger number of nurses undergo our courses lasting from 10 days to 6 weeks.
We work in 20 states in India. We don’t set up branches there; we work with local champions and institutions building their capacity to start palliative care services.
All these services cost money. In spite of the fact that more than hundred volunteers contribute their time and effort free, we still need around 65 staff members to keep the services going all over the country. Generous donations from the public keep us going.
In the current year we find ourselves with a shortfall of about 10 lakhs.

Thank you for contributing what you could. It goes towards making up for the shortfall. What you did takes away a lot of pain and brings many a smile to many a face.
