Raising Funds For

Families come from remote towns and cities across India seeking treatment for their children affected with cancer. While hospitals extend them quality medical services, the poorer families have no place to stay during the 5-12 months (sometimes extending to 24 months) that it takes to complete the treatment. Many end up living on footpaths or are forced to abandon treatment.

Along with a home-like environment for these families, we also address the psychological and social effects of cancer by providing practical support services, nutritional support, educational resources, safe transport to hospitals, and recreational programs.

Fund Utilization in 2020

Total funds raised in 2020 - INR 135207.33

Project NameAccommodation, Nutrition & Transportation
Amount Utilized (INR)135207.33

A balanced diet plays a vital role in the treatment of cancer, we provide the families with 3 nutritious meals to boost their immunity & speed up the recovery from the after effects that come in with the cancer treatment.
Free transportation to & fro the hospitals to avoid the families from exposure to public transport & chances of infection are very high.

Beneficiary GroupChildren
Beneficiary DescriptionResearch indicates 70 -90% of childhood cancers are curable, but the treatment can often be a long drawn one, lasting from anywhere between 5-12 months or sometimes even extending to 24 months. While Hospitals provide quality medical services, these treatments are often offered as out-patient visits where the patient has to visit the hospital on a regular basis. Many families who come from remote places across India to Mumbai for their child's cancer treatment have no place to stay during the course of the treatment. Some families end up living on footpaths or in unhygienic conditions due to lack of proper accommodation. When living in such an unhygienic environment without having proper nourishment, these kids start losing their battle against cancer very early on. Many poor families find themselves at crossroads for the want of a good, affordable and hygienic place to stay and have to often abandon treatment and return home. Access Life was thus born to provide a loving and temporary home for the outstation children undergoing treatment for cancer and their parents or caretakers.

Fund Utilization in 2019

Total funds raised in 2019 - INR 1998000

Project Name26 seater van cost
Amount Utilized (INR)1675000
Project DescriptionOur bravehearts have low immunity levels and using public transport exposes them to risk of infection that can hamper their progress in recovery. Given that each family makes an average of four trips to hospital per week during the course of the treatment, stress free transportation is a critical element of supportive care.
Given the increasing number of families we are supporting, we had a need for a larger vehicle like the 26 seater bus that we were able to procure from the fund raised
This supports our facilitation of their free transportation comfortably, as they go to the hospital for investigations, chemotherapy treatment/ surgery and follow-up, while their stay at Access Life.
