Pallium India provides palliative care to people suffering from chronic or life-limiting illnesses who need care for the rest of their lives. Palliative care involves improving quality of life of these people, by treating pain and other symptoms and by providing emotional, social and spiritual support.

Pallium India’s programs include home visit by a team consisting of a doctor, nurse, social worker and a local community volunteer. During these visits, very often we come across people whose lives have been ravaged by disease, left in isolation and financially ruined. We see the silent helplessness in their eyes when doctors prescribe medicines to be “taken after meals” – there is no money left to buy or cook food, and the family is starving.

Pallium India’s food-kit program supports these poor families by providing monthly a kit costing about ₹1000/- containing 5kg rice, sugar, tea and groceries.

There are countless deserving families, but we are able to reach only a fraction of them.

What can you do?

You can make a difference to such families by supporting Pallium India’s food-kit program. Please donate ₹1000 (for one month) or ₹6000 (for six months) or ₹12,000 (for a year) so that we can reach more and more people in need.
