Pediatric Palliative Program
Child-patients have to compromise a lot of their play time spending months away from their homes for their treatment needs. Also, their accompanying caregivers are usually too physically and emotionally exhausted thus the child-patients, as well as their family/caregivers, are at a particularly vulnerable phase of their lives, and need to be treated with dignity and empathy. Hence, through this project innovative techniques to help the child remain engaged are being piloted for better Pediatric Palliative Care.
The Narotam Sekhsaria Foundation through this project has instilled hope and confidence in budding Golden Butterflies organization by providing the initial support in delivering innovative interventions to children in need of pediatric palliative care interventions.
Golden Butterflies Children’s Palliative Care Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of underprivileged children suffering from chronic, advanced or incurable diseases, and their families/ caregivers, by providing palliative care, counselling, nutritional support and financial assistance, to avoid unnecessary suffering.
This project is intended to give better Pediatric palliative care and to bring smiles to pediatric patients while they go through otherwise exhausting treatment for their chronic illness.
