CARE AND SUPPORT


care_support1

We focus on care and support to enhance quality of life for terminal cancer patients by providing social, spiritual and psychological support to cancer patients and caregivers. We supply B-protein every month to Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral Hospital (JDWNRH) oncology ward as a majority of the cancer patient come from a poor background who cannot afford the basic nutritional supplement. We have also created a platform where cancer patients can visit the office and share their concerns in full confidentiality  and where we try to solve their concerns when needed. We also work on creating a network of cancer survivors and cancer patients to help create a sense of community. Given that cancer treatment is provided only in Thimphu, most patients are in no position to manage accommodation while undergoing treatment in Thimphu. Currently we are seeking funding to mobilize resource to operate and manage a four-room transit home for patient in Thimphu.
