Since the last two years, KARO has dedicated every effort to our latest endeavour⎯ KARO HOME. This initiative provides free accommodation, nourishment and holistic support to patients from around the country undergoing treatment for cancer in Mumbai. Work on the first home, our pilot project, dedicated to female patients, began in October 2018. Time and care was taken to search for its location, which is conveniently only 15 minutes away from TATA Hospital and KEM Hospital by road and a 10 minute walk from Lokmanya Tilak Municipal General (Sion Hospital). The first KARO HOME opened its doors in June 2019 and can support 11 patients along with their female caregivers. It features 11 separate and fully furnished, well ventilated rooms.
As of now, the first KARO HOME has benefitted around 72 cancer patients and their caregivers with over 150 secure and happy days spent in the KARO HOME. We are hopeful of launching KARO HOME 2, 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.
Donate to KARO and know that your donation, through these amazingly curated projects, will make a difference in the lives of people affected by life threatening diseases who do not have the means to care for themselves.
