Project Description

At the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Jhajjar, underprivileged cancer patients often have to look for temporary shelters along with family members who accompany them. To support such families, the company collaborated with the hospital to build an 800-bed dharmashala inside the campus. The NCI, AIIMS – New Delhi (Jhajjar campus) is one of the largest flagship projects of the Government of India. Established as the apex center for translational research in cancer care and prevention, NCI has 710 patient care beds, 25 operation theaters, 1,500 accommodation units, state-of-the-art diagnostics, advanced radiation treatment facilities, and much more. The cyclical nature of the treatment means that cancer patients often have to make daily visits to the hospital for long stretches, during which they need accommodation for themselves and their families. The foundation aims to provide shelter for such underprivileged patients and their attendants. The construction is taking place close to the hospital and its OPD blocks. AIIMS, Jhajjar is providing the land and the costs towards water and electricity, and the Foundation is bearing the construction costs. The 10-storeyed structure will be built over 25,200 sq.m. The plan proposes a mix of dormitory rooms (floors 1-5) and private rooms (floors 6-8) with a common dining facility, pharmacy, and utility stores on the ground floor. Dr. Harsh Vardhan, the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, laid the foundation of the project on November 14, 2019. It is expected to be completed by 2022. Every day, more than 100 patients, mostly from low-income households, visit NCI for treatment. Family members accompanying them have a hard time finding affordable accommodation close to the hospital. The foundation not only saves these families the money they would otherwise have to spend on travel and accommodation, but also ensures that they can focus on the treatment and well-being of the ailing person.
