JivDaya Foundation (JDF) based in Dallas, Texas, USA was founded by Dr Vinay Jain and his wife. The foundation got into palliative care work in India in 2010 and started supporting three organizations. In 2011, the list grew to about a dozen new ones. Great progress indeed, and we send our congratulations to Dr Vinay Jain and team.

Dr. Vinay Jain, founder of JivDaya Foundation

JDF held its annual review meeting in Hotel Mapple Emerald, New Delhi on 16 March 2012.  Representatives from all JDF-supported centers and potential collaborators got together to share experiences and to make plans for future. This turned to be a good opportunity for many working in the field to connect in person and learn from one another.

Dr Vinay Jain does a great deal towards strengthening organizations for the long haul. JDF assists palliative care teams treating cancer patients by funding salaries of essential staff and by facilitating a system of documentation. Pallium India’s Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS) is one of the recipients of JDF’s assistance.

Thank you very much Dr Vinay Jain and team!
