What we do

The primary aim of St. Jude India ChildCare Centres USA (SJICC USA) is to provide a tax-effective way for residents and taxpayers of the USA to make donations to charities in India that meet our goals.

Many needy children come from all over India to major cities, such as Mumbai, for cancer treatment which last for months. Whilst the treatments themselves are funded by the generosity of various charities, housing for these very sick children is a real, and often insurmountable problem. Several of these children end up on the streets, living in dirt and squalor. Their survival rate is very poor as their immune systems are already compromised by chemotherapy.

Our aim is to raise funds for such organizations as SJICC India, that provide:

Safe & Hygienic Housing
Value Based Education
Transport To & From Treatment
Cooking Facilities & Nutritious Rations
Counselling For Children & Parents

This makes all the difference in the outcome of their cancer treatment. The existing centers have greatly increased the success rate and the chances of survival of these children. SJICC USA supports St. Judes in India in its fundraising efforts.


Who we are

SJICC USA raises funds in North America in support of charities in India with an excellent record of governance, transparency and impact. THese charities provide much needed care for sick needy children.

SJICC USA can provide a tax-effective way for residents and taxpayers of the USA to make donations to fund grant applications submitted by charities in India that meet our goals. Our current focus is to fund St. Jude India ChildCare Centers in Mumbai, but we have the flexibility to support allied charities in India that have adopted a model similar to that of St. Judes(www.stjudechild.org).

Great Leadership
