Who We Are


About Santhwanakendram

Our dream project Rehabilitation & Palliative Care Centre to erase the sorrow of poor and abandoned patients who are terminally ill and housed at the isolation ward of the General Hospital, Ernakulam. It is not uncommon to hear reports regarding many unfortunate victims of fate who end up in the hospital with diseases, without having anyone to claim them and turned a destitute who has nowhere to go even after they get discharged from the hospital.

Our Palliative Care Centre is a 40 bedded facility and built on the ideology of care for the poor from the utmost thoughtful and compassionate hands. The foundation stone of this dream project was laid on February 4, 2017. The estimated cost of Santhwanakendram, a Rs.3 Cr project came to a reality with the benevolent support of our Platinum Sponsors, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd, Lulu Forex, and our Patrons Mr. J.Paul Raj, Mr. E.P George and Mr. Salil Gupta.

Rotary Cancure Dialysis Centre

The growing number of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) due to life style changes and high incidence of diabetic and hypertension patients among the people of Kerala prompted the Foundation for entering into the forays of treatment of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Those poor patients suffering from renal failure need lifelong dialysis unless he/she can get successful renal transplant. Depending on each patient's condition the patient may need to undergo dialysis two to three times a week. Most of the Government facilities where dialysis services are provided have long waiting period with many patients and lessor number of dialysis machines.

The cost of lifelong dialysis, investigations and medicines are not affordable to a poor patient who has to live their whole life with the disease. This thought lead Cancure to conceive a dialysis centre for the poor and needy at affordable rates or even at no cost. This Dialysis Centre was initiated in Association with Rotary Foundation and the Rotary Club of Cochin Technopolis. Dialysis Centre is constructed in the ground floor of our Santhwanakendram with 8 Dialysis Units. Medical and technical support for the Dialysis Centre are provided by Lourdes Hospital, Ernakulam.
