Over the last few years Kerala witnessed a dramatic increase in number of cancer patients creating panic among general public. The changes in life style, over dependence on foods and vegetables from other states, unscientific and over usage of pesticides by farmers contributed this kind of increase in number of cancer patients in Kerala. The high cost of cancer drugs and treatment increased the burden of people in the state. This prompted ESSS to join hands with Caritas India in Starting Asakiranam Cancer Care Project with the aim of creating a self-reliant community which enable to take preventive, curative and rehabilitative aspects of cancer disease. The Main components of the project are Local Fund Mobilization, Cancer Awareness, and Financial Aid to Deserving Cancer Patients, Medical & Psychological Support and the Promotion of Organic Farming.
