TRUST - Introduction
The Ganga Prem Hospice project is a project of the Delhi-based Shradha Cancer Care Trust. The Trust is a public charity set up to establish desperately needed cancer care facilities in Northern India.

Shradha Cancer Care Trust was founded by the eminent oncologist Dr A. K. Dewan from Delhi. Dr Dewan is the head of the Surgical Oncology Department at the Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute in North Delhi. He has been working with cancer patients for more than 30 years and has been deeply moved by the physical agony and mental anguish which confronts both the patients and their families.

The lack of cancer facilities in India, where there are 1,000,000 new cancer cases every year, has been a source of great concern to him. In November 2005, this sincere concern led him to establish the Shradha Cancer Care Trust. The Trust is a public charity dedicated to creating medical facilities in general and in particular cancer care centres.

Ganga Prem Hospice
As its first project, the Trust has chosen to create a much needed hospice for terminally ill cancer patients. The Ganga Prem Hospice, which has a spiritual and holistic orientation, has been constructed on the bank of the river Ganga, near the town of Rishikesh in Uttrakhanda. Dr. Dewan and his Trust members have been joined in their efforts by spiritual adepts and holistic therapists from the area.
