Welcome to Karunashraya
Thank you for visiting the home page of Karunashraya.
The Bangalore Hospice Trust (BHT) – Karunashraya, meaning an ‘abode of compassion’ was incepted as a registered charitable trust by the Indian Cancer Society (Karnataka Chapter) and Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar to provide free-of-charge professional palliative care for advanced stage cancer patients who are beyond cure.
The first hospice of its genre in India to offer patients the flexibility of alternating between the hospice and their home, Karunashraya helps patients live without pain, and in dignity and peace till their journey’s end.
We have been offering in-patient care since 1999 and home care since 1995, tending to over 12,800 patients and touching the lives of their families by providing a supportive environment.
If you or someone you deeply care for has been diagnosed with advanced stage cancer we will be able to offer you constant care and comfort, relief from pain, and counselling to alleviate distress.
If you are not a patient or a loved one of a patient but are passionate about supporting our mission as a volunteer, donor, medical fraternity member or want to know about the education we offer to less privileged girls to become health assistants in palliative care or to those aspiring to do further education in palliative care you are in the right place.
We invite you to explore our website to understand what we do and how you can benefit as a patient or as a care-giving family member or friend of a patient. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any further information. It would be our privilege to share details of our mission with you.
