There’s more to healing than medicine. There’s compassion, contribution and mindful care. Nobody should have to endure cancer alone.

of doing

We take caring to the next level. We invest time, creativity and careful attention to detail. Unique problems require unique solutions.

Who We Are

Established in 2014, KARO is a non-profit organisation that provides holistic cancer care to patients from low-income communities and their families, with a focus on teenage and young adult patients.

Our interventions include, but are not limited to, financial assistance. We also work towards preventive healthcare, rehabilitation and mental health support for cancer patients. We make consistent efforts with each patient to make a long-lasting difference to their life.


No disease or illness should make a person’s life less worthy of meaning. KARO’s aim is to provide every patient a chance to fight disease with dignity. This is why KARO goes above and beyond to provide end-to-end holistic care and support to underprivileged patients suffering from cancer and other life-threatening diseases. KARO does this through initiatives like:

New Initiatives

Building upon KARO’s past to create the KARO of the future—one of our newest initiatives is KARO HOME, a unique, free accommodation project for Teenage and Young Adult (TYAs) cancer patients from out of town.

The first home is an 11-bed facility located in Mumbai, that provides a hygienic and relaxed environment for young girls and women patients in need from different parts of the country to complete their treatment efficiently and effectively. We are hopeful of launching KARO HOME KURLA, this time for teenage boys and young men. With your help our goal is to open at least ten more KARO HOMES in the near future.


The time to do is now—act today to save and empower lives.


KARO is wholly funded through our donor partners. Every initiative is backed by organisations that believe in the KARO mission and vision. If you would like to partner with us, reach out and join the endeavour.
