Shanti Avedna Sadan

Reporter: Shubhendu Shekhar

The Shanti Avedna Sadan,  a non-governmental voluntary organization, run by a Charitable Trust is India’s first Hospice, an institution that takes care of the advanced terminally ill Cancer patients. It is neither a hospital nor a home, but is in fact both, offering the specialized care of a hospital together with the love of a home.
