Punjab state is severely affected by cancer and has limited facilities for patients, often forcing patients to visit cancer treatment centres in Rajasthan and Delhi. This relocation causes loss of livelihood apart from the pain from the disease.
CanSupport has chosen the district of Amritsar to commence its Punjab operations and intends to expand to other cities in the next five years. The Home care teams will provide much needed care to cancer patients of Amritsar and nearby areas.
Our project study indicates that we shall need ₹1 crore over the first 3 years to ensure longer term sustainability of operations.
