Message of the Director, Regional Cancer Centre for the Care Plus Website

Dr. Paul Sebastian

Care Plus - a registered charitable NGO - has been working in association with the Regional Cancer Centre (RCC), Trivandrum, since June 2003. They have been doing commendable work in the area of Homebased Palliative Care for poor patients registered with RCC who are later unable to travel and come to the Centre’s OP for treatment.

I also understand that Care Plus is attending to several patients who cannot come over to RCC, at the perepheral clinics they are conducting at - Attingal, Nedumangad, Neyyattinkara and Kattakada.

Their concern and compassion for the poor patients is reflected in their other key activities such as - extending financial help for the education of the home care patient children, rehabilitation of patient’s spouses, and giving food kits for Onam and Xmas.

Although our institution has registered vast growth over the past decade, the regular increase in the patients reaching the centre has added to our limitations. It is in this area that organizations such as Care Plus have played a very important role.

I am confident that Care Plus will continue to extend their valuable service to the poor patients reaching RCC just as over the decade and half they have been associating with our Institution.
